VAGTC Parent Seminar Series

The Victorian Association for Gifted and Talented Children (VAGTC), in partnership with the Department of Education and Training, is hosting free online parent seminars which aim to educate and support parents of high ability children.

The Parent Seminar Series is an initiative of the VAGTC and funded by the Department of Education and Training.

Based on feedback from the 2020 seminars, these seminars are designed to support parents in their parenting journeys, to foster positive and collaborative home and school partnerships and to connect parents with each other to provide networking and support

The seminars will explore:

* the definitions and identification of giftedness and talent

* how to understand the characteristics and needs of gifted kids

* how to advocate for your child

* how to build positive home and school partnerships

* how to enrich your child’s learning at home
