GaTE Foundation Series
Through our workshop series we provide Gifted and Talented Education (GaTE) professional development which focuses on identifying and nurturing high potential across all ethnic and economic backgrounds. We will support you to develop a cohesive, evidence-based school-wide programme based on current, internationally recognised best practice. Each workshop will build on the knowledge and understandings gained in the previous workshops. It is possible to attend future workshops without attending any previous.
