Supporting the Able, Gifted and Talented


A comprehensive one-day seminar for those working with able, gifted and talented pupils in maintained and independent schools. Focusing on the teaching and learning of academically more able pupils, we consider their characteristics and needs as learners, and explore ways of enlivening and accelerating their learning in and out of the classroom, including use of technology and other resources. We look at different perspectives on supporting these pupils, ways of tailoring provision to their individual needs and approaches to monitoring achievement and progress, including ISI inspection considerations. Discover the most effective ways of optimizing the learning experience of the able, gifted and talented in your school so that you’re placed well to enhance the educational outcomes for these pupils.
