Apple Learning Institute

A new, virtual professional learning experience for educators.


Join fellow Apple Teachers and the Aspire 2Be team for a series of online events, focusing on effective use of Apple technology in education.


Commencing in January, a series of virtual Apple Learning Institutes will begin, offering Apple Teachers across the UK & Ireland the opportunity to become Apple Learning Leaders.


Connection and Collaboration. A variety of events identifying theory, tools and tips that will support you and your organisation in the use of Apple technology for learning and teaching. 

As an Apple Professional Learning Provider, we are proud to launch the Apple Learning Institute – a virtual, multi-day professional learning experience.

The purpose of ALI is to prepare and develop educators in their ability to facilitate a whole school approach to the effective integration of iOS devices, Apple apps, and Apple resources for learning and teaching. It is designed to enhance the readiness of individuals for their role in developing the foundational and integration level skills of educators in their schools and to showcase how Apple technology can transform learning outcomes.

To attend the ALI, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Apple Teacher certified
  • Qualified and practising educator, ideally with a leading role in digital development for your school
  • Bring your own, fully charged iPad device with most recent operating system.
