RGS Worcester has launched an Apple Regional Training Centre, which is designed to provide local teachers with free training, expertise and access to best practice to support their use of technology in the classroom.  The School is the only centre in the country to operate an Apple Training Centre in both Prep and Senior Schools settings, and the only Independent school in the Region to be awarded this status.

More than 50 teachers from over 30 schools gathered at RGS Worcester to hear how iPads are transforming teaching and learning at the School, and to find out how the free IT training on offer at the RTC centre could benefit their schools.

RGS Worcester has incorporated iPad technology into its teaching and learning for the last three years, engaging and motivating pupils using technology as an additional learning tool alongside traditional teaching techniques.  By becoming an Apple Regional Training Centre, the School will provide free courses and training for teachers from the whole Region with the support of Goldfinch Technology and Toucan Computing.

Mr Robert Berry, Director of IT at RGS Worcester said, “By harnessing the best technology appropriately, we are enhancing learning and doing things that were not previously possible. With the launch of the Training Centre, we are now seeking to work with schools both locally and nationally to share ideas and expertise.”

Mr John Pitt, Headmaster of RGS Worcester said, “Our Digital Learning Programme is about giving our teachers the opportunities to provide learning experiences for every single student that will engage, support and challenge them to perform to the very best of their ability. We hope by being a Regional Training Centre we can provide those opportunities for more teachers to share best practice in teaching and learning for pupils.”
