A gifted workshop - for management!

Most gifted workshops are for classroom teachers. When did you last see a workshop that offered YOU support in meeting the complex needs of this group of learners? This workshop has been specially designed for you and your GATE coordinator – and there’s a free place for a BOT member too! It acknowledges the crucial leadership role you have to play, and it deals with the practical responsibilities and decisions that role entails -everything from linking to school vision to budgeting to dealing with parents and whanau, plus a job description to help you in appointing and working with your GATE coordinator. And this is really timely – for the first time in many years, gifted education now has official Ministerial and Ministry support. There’s an expectation that schools will now move to meet NAG 1 c (iii) and d, changed in 2005 to make gifted provision a requirement but never fully implemented in practice. Now it can be! This workshop will guide you in meeting that NAG obligation and in supporting your teachers, your gifted learners, and their families.
