What does Gifted NEX provide?

Gifted NEX provides online opportunities for professional growth and networking.  In 2022 this support will be provided via our online Symposium, Gifted Cafe discussion sessions and resources sharing opportunities.

Additionally, gifted education resources will be provided online as a way of helping support teachers and other education professionals to share and grow


Who is Gifted NEX for and how can it help?

Gifted NEX is part of the Ministry of Education PLD programme with a mantra of ‘for teachers by teachers,’ therefore it is predominantly for teachers in early years, primary, intermediate and secondary settings.

Gifted NEX is also available for homeschooling parents and educational professionals who support gifted learners in their practice.

Gifted NEX helps by connecting communities of interest across the Network to best practices and ‘go to’ options for support. It also provides resources to enrich educators’ understanding of gifted education and gifted learners.
