About the Liverpool RTC

Barlows Primary School is proud to be the home of the Liverpool Regional Training Centre for Apple (RTC) which is run by a team of dedicated staff. As an RTC, we deliver a range of training courses using Apple technology in the classroom.

Our courses are open to all teachers and school staff, with the aim of inspiring educators through sharing practice and providing a supportive network of colleagues who can learn from each other.


About Apple Regional Training Centres

Apple Regional Training Centres deliver courses to build the skills and confidence of educators to use Apple technology inside and outside the classroom. They are a community who share best practices and inspire excellence through teaching with Apple technology.

Being selected as an Apple Regional Training Centre highlights our commitment to facilitating training for teachers to develop skills and build confidence to use Apple technology in the classroom. 

Apple Regional Training Centres create a community to share best practice and support teaching staff to attain Apple Teacher status, a professional learning programme designed to support and celebrate educators.

Teachers from across the region can attend courses to build their knowledge and skills using technology in the classroom and earn badges to achieve their Apple Teacher recognition.

Across the UK and Ireland, the goals of all Apple Regional Training Centres are to:

• facilitate training opportunities for teachers to develop skills using Apple technology in the classroom

• promote Apple in Education and share new products and innovations with educators

• build Apple Teacher across the region
