Hamilton: A series of workshops for educators supporting gifted learners

Professional development (PD) Waikato

Posted: 20 June 2022
Notice reference #: 1HAUjw

This workshop will explore how we can develop shared understandings of what it means to be gifted. Utilising a bi-cultural approach, participants will discover the ways in which they can identify gifted learners and their particular needs within their localised context.

“If their needs are not recognised and supported, gifted children may not progress to their potential, which may have impacts on their identity, and social and emotional wellbeing. We want to ensure gifted children and young people have access to a range of learning that challenges them and helps them to succeed.”
Ministry of Education, (2019). Learning support action plan 2019-2025 pg. 35
