Gifted Aotearoa

Gifted Aotearoa is a national Network of Expertise established to improve the quality of education offered to young gifted New Zealanders. Gifted Aotearoa is funded by the Ministry of Education, providing support through sharing professional expertise, growing local networks, nurturing local leadership and developing professional pathways. The Network is part of the MoE PLD plan and provided primarily for state and integrated school principals, management, and educators in New Zealand schools and kura.

The network is currently offering new opportunities for distance modules, face to face hui, independent research and collaborative projects.

Available for term 3 and 4, these opportunities build on and extend from those already on offer via Waka Tīwai, Waka Kōpapa and Waka Hourua.
