ELEVATE: agile design for high potential learners


The ELEVATE program comes at a time when there is considerable interest, both nationally and internationally, in reshaping schooling to optimise the strengths of all learners. This robust innovation program will support leading educators to collaboratively design and implement powerful practices to lift learning outcomes for high potential learners. ELEVATE has been initiated by AISNSW and amplified by strategic partnerships with the UK-based Innovation Unit, and the Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership. Funding for this program has been provided by the Australian Government Students First Support Fund and AISNSW.
