  • Students of gifted and exceptional ability are much more common and harder to identify than is often supposed. Often they can underachieve at school as a result of frustration or due to lack of stimulation. Their potential can also be masked by learning difficulties or disabilities. Developed in partnership with the Centre for Talented Youth, Ireland (CTYI) at Dublin City University, this course is designed to enable teachers and other professionals to identify and respond to the diverse needs of gifted and talented students.

While much of the emphasis is on students with advanced academic abilities, the needs of students who also have learning difficulties and those whose talents lie in other areas, such as those who are creatively gifted, are also examined.  Summarising current research and best practice and wide ranging in its scope, this course offers a sound foundation to anyone interested in the education of gifted and talented learners.
