NZCGE has built up expertise around ensuring depth and complexity is present in learning for gifted students and now specialises in offering PLD workshops that facilitate learning with Kaplan’s Depth and Complexity Framework. We are collaborating with JTaylor Education to ensure quality PLD true to the Depth and Complexity Framework and tailored to the application within the New Zealand Curriculum and School context.
