Waka Kōpapa were ideal for moving small groups of people together, just as our leadership development course helps to move groups of educators along on their journey as leaders in gifted education.

We are now taking expressions of interest for our fourth intake of Waka Kōpapa to take place later in 2020!

Please email adriane.bancroft@nzcge.co.nz to register your interest.
