About Apple Learning Coach

Apple Learning Coach is a free professional learning program that trains instructional coaches, digital learning specialists and other coaching educators to help teachers get more out of Apple technology. It’s a dynamic mix of self-paced lessons, workshop sessions and personal creative projects — and participants may be eligible to receive continuing education credits.*

La Lernada Sperto
Once accepted into the program, Apple Learning Coach candidates engage in an online course, with self-paced modules and two days of workshops with Apple Professional Learning Specialists. This experience provides a cohort of fellow coaches, as well as Coaching Journals and actionable takeaways. The learning experience builds to the creation of a Coaching Portfolio, which candidates submit as their final assessment at the end of the course.
