Run A Gifted Programme At Your School
MindPlus YourSchool brings ready-to-go specialist education capability to your school.
Helping gifted learners to thrive
Give your gifted kids a space for a half day a week where they can push their boundaries, share their passions, and be part of a tribe that gets how they tick.
The New Zealand Centre for Gifted Education supports you to offer your own world-class half-day a week programme for the Y2 - 10 gifted learners at your school or across your Kāhui Ako, wherever in New Zealand you are. At the same time, we train your teacher as a specialist MindPlus educator.
After two years, you will be equipped to run your own YourSchool programme using our MindPlus platforms and resources.
“We know there’s a very real need in our school, but right now, we don’t have the capacity to meet that need. We want to bring our teachers along on this journey”
- Principal, Nelson primary school
“What I really enjoy is being able to partner up with [our NZCGE teacher] and really talk about not just the curriculum we're covering but the kids that we have.”
- Partner Teacher, Feilding primary school
