Basingstoke College of Technology (BCoT) is pleased to announce that it has been recognised as an Apple Regional Training Centre for 2019–2020.
Being selected as an Apple Regional Training Centre highlights BCoT’s commitment to facilitating training for teachers to develop skills and build confidence to use Apple technology in the classroom.
Principal of BCoT Anthony Bravo said: “We are very proud to be recognised as an Apple Regional Training Centre. As a digital centre of excellence, all of our full-time courses have digital technology at the heart of our teaching and learning. Our dedicated BCoT Digital team ensure our lecturers are equipped with the latest skills and technology to prepare our students for the world of work or further study.”
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 Hampshire can attend courses to build knowledge and skills and earn badges to achieve Apple Teacher recognition.
BCoT has been widely recognised for its use of digital technology. As well as being named an Apple Regional Training Centre, the college was one of only three colleges nationally in the Edtech50, which recognises the very best of the UK’s education technology people, products and projects.
In 2018 BCoT won the award for ‘Outstanding use of technology for improving teaching, learning and assessment’ at the annual Tes FE Awards, and was named a Google for Education Reference College.
