“Outstanding in calibre and sustainability”. That’s how international judges described this course when giving it the US NAGC Professional Development Network Award. It’s a unique recognition for a New Zealand course – and it’s your guarantee of really top quality.

So why did this course score so highly?

Would it be right for you?

Firstly, it’s a very practical course, with a focus on strategies that are realistic for classroom teachers. That’s a key consideration. And you’ll have continuous personal guidance every step of the way from one of our tutors, all of whom have decades of experience in this specific field of learning. They bring a depth of insight and knowledge to working with you. You’ll also be given access to a rich archive of resources – practical material, assessment tools and research information. The course itself is firmly based on the research in the field and is constantly updated. And because it’s available online, you can access this course wherever you live, work on it at times that suit you, and avoid the cost of relievers for your school! Being online, we have teachers joining us from various countries. But we’re first and foremost a New Zealand course, and that means we include Māori and Pasifika expectations and what they so valuably contribute to this field.

So what is our field?

Gifted learners. They are amongst some of the unhappiest and least supported youngsters in our schools. Maybe you think that’s not for you. But as so many other teachers have found, learning about gifted learners opens up whole new aspects of teaching that benefit all learners.
