PGT pursues its goals by working in three main areas: Direct Services for Gifted and Talented Students, Research and Resource Development, and Professional Services and Consultation for Schools, Teachers and Parents.
PGT is strongly committed to gifted education and talent development, and regularly organizes the Spring, Summer and Winter Programs for gifted and talented students. By providing highly challenging out-of-school learning opportunities for gifted youths, PGT intends to help them explore and develop their potentials at an early age in an enriched learning environment. To enrich gifted learners' educational experience, PGT has offered a variety of specially designed courses and programs including:
Another main focus of PGT is on research and development of gifted resource materials. PGT has been actively involved in conducting quantitative and qualitative research studies to assess and identify the characteristics and needs of gifted students. The research findings, published in many local and international journals, have broadened our knowledge on giftedness and have generated important information which has applications in designing gifted curricula and programs, and providing insights for further research.
Recognizing that teachers and parents should have an appropriate repertoire of teaching or parenting strategies that fit the characteristics and needs of gifted students, PGT also organizes gifted education seminars, workshops, and sharing discussion groups to promote awareness among teachers and parents on gifted education and the nurturing of talents in students. In addition, PGT provides consultation services for schools and teachers on the assessment and identification of gifted students, gives suggestion for design and implementation of school-based gifted programs and recommendation for special programming options.
