Learn how Apple and iPad could work in your school with our free webinar series

Join our series of free "bite-sized" webinars this December to learn about Apple in Education and the benefits of adopting an Apple-based 1:1 strategy

A device for every pupil is a real enabler for supporting remote and hybrid learning during the challenges of Covid-19. Because of this, we’re talking to more and more schools about their digital transformation strategies and the benefits of adopting a 1:1 model.

Consider an Apple-based approach

If you’d like to learn how Apple technologies could help to transform the teaching and learning experience in your school, then register to attend one, or all, of our free December webinars.  Our sessions all run at the end of the school day (4.00pm to 5.00pm) and are just an hour long each.  We've teamed up with Apple Professional Learning Specialist and experienced education consultant David Kirtlan to deliver these sessions, so they'll be packed with practical and useful advice. 

BT is an Apple Authorised Education Specialist (AAES) - one of just a few partners in the UK to be awarded this prestigious status. It shows that BT is an expert provider of Apple solutions to education customers, with a proven track record of supporting schools at every stage of their digital transformation journey.  The experts in our dedicated Apple Education Practice are all here to help you turn your school's digital vision into reality.
