Published in November this year, the SAGE Handbook of Gifted and Talented Education offers an international overview of current challenges, issues and perspectives on ability and its development, featuring contributions from NACE Education Adviser Hilary Lowe and several NACE patrons.

The handbook is organised into three parts:

  1. Concepts of Giftedness and Identification: Social and Emotional Needs
  2. Educational Provision: Programs and Strategies
  3. Global Responses to Emerging G&T Provision: Defining the Future

Each section comprises contributions from researchers and experts around the world, exploring approaches to defining and understanding ability, as well as the political, social and economic factors which influence perspectives in this field.

In her chapter on the education of highly able learners in England, NACE Education Adviser Hilary Lowe summarises national policy and guidance, with reference to exemplary provision in NACE Challenge Award-accredited schools.

The handbook is edited by NACE patron Belle Wallace alongside Dorothy A. Sisk and John Senior. Fellow patrons Joan Freeman and Chris Yapp also feature, with Freeman authoring a chapter on the emotional development of gifted and talented learners, and Yapp contributing the preface. They join contributors from a wide range of disciplines and locations, giving a wide-ranging overview of current thinking in the field.
