The two-day Mini-COGE provides useful and practical Professional Development to educators in supporting gifted and high potential students. Gifted and high potential students are not necessarily high achievers; we focus on how to engage and support these students to reach their high potential.

The Mini-COGE will help you to:

  • Identify gifted, high potential and talented students
  • Differentiate the curriculum for high potential students
  • Implement ability grouping or acceleration
  • Understand gifted education research and best practices
  • Develop an existing (or create a new) unit of work to best suit the needs of the differentiated classroom and gifted students

The unit of work allows you to implement practical changes to curriculum, assessment and pedagogy, receive feedback from other educators and the GERRIC academic presenter, and provide ongoing impact to you and your students.

Please note that attendance for all hours is mandatory, so please plan your travel and commitments accordingly.

The Mini-COGE is designed for teachers and administrators currently working in schools. If you have another role, please email us at [email protected] to enquire before registering.
