The demise of G&T?

As budgets tighten, gifted and talented programmes are becoming largely forgotten about in state schools...

I have been a self-employed careers advisor for over 20 years, and now primarily work in top independent schools.

I have in the past done a lot of work with the gifted and talented (G&T) cohort in the state sector, but now only work in one state school.

The G&T stream needs special attention, especially in the increasingly underfunded state sector, where they are in danger of not making the most of their innate ability.

There are political issues with the concept of G&T and I know many teachers feel uncomfortable with identifying pupils and with any extra support being offered.
