The University of South Wales (USW) Newport Campus is pleased to announce that it has been recognised as an Apple Regional Training Centre for 2017–2018.

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 Gwent can attend courses to build knowledge and skills and earn badges to achieve Apple Teacher recognition.

“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,” said USW lecturer Mathew Pullen, who is an Apple Distinguished Educator.

“We have long been at the forefront of integrating technology into our syllabus. Children are growing up immersed in a world of gadgets, and, as ‘digital natives’, have a sound understanding of what can be achieved by using this technology.

“It is vital that our trainee teachers are able to not only understand what is possible, but also provide education through this ever-advancing technology.”
