Academy Conferences is based in the UK and helps students and teachers to approach education as a worthy end in itself. We do this by running Gifted and Talented Masterclass conferences for students and teachers in the UK, New Zealand and Australia, going beyond the curriculum to offer a connected and critical overview of academic subjects and the big ideas they examine. Our events are run in partnership with The Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion at Oxford University and are delivered by specialists in their field.

This year’s speakers include Julie Arliss who is an international educator of gifted students, Dr. Andrew Pinsent, CERN physicist from Oxford University, Dr. Stephen Law who is the Provost of the Centre for Enquiry at University of London, Professor Tom Greggs who is Director of Research at University of Aberdeen and Jeffrey Hodges who is a performance consultant working with elite athletes in Australia.

Our Learning Communities are based on the BES for teacher Professional Learning and Development, as well as Guskey (1995) guidelines where research for pre-reading and prior thinking is provided before each Learning Community meeting. This research will provide the starting point for that term’s focus. Each session will be framed by a theme but there will be opportunities provided to network and receive guidance on particular GATE areas that you would like to address. Members are welcome to bring along additional research, resources or material that can be used alongside those prepared by the Cognition GaTE facilitators.

Please note that school professional learning groups (PLG) are welcome to enrol together to include this PLC as part of their PLG programme.
