International Collaborations

Scottish Network for Able Pupils (SNAP) is involved in a number of international collaborations, these allow SNAP the opportunity to both disseminate information and research findings on Scottish Inclusive approach to high ability and also to learn about good practices and research findings in other parts of the world.

These collaborations allow us to look across the lifespan of the highly able individual from students perceptions of their highly able peers in primary school to the concept of high ability in old age.
