Enhance your ability to cater to the needs of gifted learners
GERRIC's Mini Certificate of Gifted Education (Mini-COGE) provides research-informed and practical professional development to teachers and school leaders. The mini-COGE is 16 hours in length and may be delivered to individual schools or to clusters of schools in metropolitan or regional areas in all Australian states and territories. We’re also able to offer the program to schools overseas. Participants receive 16 hours of NESA-accredited professional learning at a proficient level in New South Wales.
We run the mini-COGE either on campus at UNSW Sydney in Kensington throughout the year (see the 2019/2020 table dates below to register) or at your school throughout the year.
Please note the mini-COGE is designed for teachers and administrators currently working in schools. If you have another role, please email us to enquire before attempting to register.
What our students say about the Mini-COGE workshop
"Just what I was looking for. This has given me such a great base for my work with leading teachers at my school with effective differentiation, not only for gifted students but for all students. The presentation took us through all the necessary elements of catering for gifted students at an excellent pacing."
- Mark, Middle Leader of Learning, St Brigid's Primary School, 2019
"Well explained theory and opportunities to apply to practical situations. Also, chances to share thinking and experiences with other teachers."
- Greg Longney, Head of Academic Enrichment and Extension, Barker College, June 2017
"An extremely relevant and engaging two days. Packed full to the brim with ideas bound in evidence-based research and real world scenarios. Extremely practical advice that unpacked the 'stigma' around the characteristics of intellectually gifted students, dispelling many of the assumptions around these learners."
- Anonymous teacher, 2019
