Gifted with Learning Disability Australia (GLD)
GLD Australia is a national not-for-profit online learning community and support group responding to the needs of intellectually gifted children and adults with specific learning disability or other learning challenges (GLD). Through the sharing of information, research and personal experiences, GLD Australia members seek to provide support for GLD children and for those who care for, teach and advocate for them.
Gifted NSW supports GLD Australia. Financial membership of Gifted NSW provides the opportunity for complimentary membership to the GLD community.
The Teachers’ Guild of New South Wales
The Teachers’ Guild of New South Wales is a professional organization that has been in existence since 1892 and has a Council made up of educators across our systems of education.
The Guild exists to promote and further the cause of education generally and to consider all questions affecting the status and interests of the teaching profession. It takes no part in matters of an industrial nature. Over the years the Guild characterised its core value as “The Care of Education”. Without abandoning that essential concern, today the Guild’s logo reads “Doceo ut discam: I teach, that I may learn”, and seeks to express a commitment to continued professional learning.
Gifted NSW has a formal Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Guild. We are mutually committed to joint events that further gifted education in NSW, PLUS Gifted NSW financial members receive member’s rates at all Guild events.
