The Scottish Network for Able Pupils and the TILE Network are delighted to host a webinar as part of Explorathon 2021. Bringing together experts in this area, we will explore how we can support highly able pupils. This webinar will be of interest to teachers, student teachers, policy makers, parents, authority personnel and all who have an interest in the topic.

Monday, 20 September 2021 @ 4pm-5:30pm


We will use the hashtag #HighlyAbleBugsBees for this event.


This webinar will hear about a range of exciting school-based projects all of which have their roots in sustainability. These projects have been developed to include all learners. By making small tweaks and thinking creatively they can provide wonderful opportunities for engaging our highly able learners. Come along and hear what you can do to inspire your learners.
