The 2005 White Paper, Higher Standards, Better Schools for All, sets support for gifted and talented pupils clearly in the context of personalisation. It provides the opportunity for the National Strategies to develop a cross-phase programme focusing on higher-attaining, more able, and gifted and talented pupils.
The National Strategies already work with Leading Teachers for English, mathematics, Minority Ethnic Achievement and, most recently, intervention. While these are different models there is common ground. Research shows that the most effective professional development is classroom-focused and collaborative. Leading teachers working alongside other staff are able to ensure that professional development is securely located in recent and relevant practice. They are able to bring a local knowledge and understanding of particular contexts and tailor developments accordingly, sharing practice locally and beyond.
This flyer explains how the National Strategies are working with all Local Authorities to provide Continuous Professional Development (CPD) so that all schools have access to a trained Leading Teacher for Gifted and Talented Education.
