The GEP Enrichment Model is an eclectic one, with elements and practices drawn from the conceptual models of a number of gifted programmes over the world. Enrichment in the GEP is built upon the regular curriculum of subject syllabi.

Enrichment is achieved through curriculum differentiation in 4 areas:

  1. Content Enrichment

    The GEP curriculum:

    • extends beyond the basic syllabus in depth and breadth
    • covers more advanced topics whenever necessary
    • caters more to individual needs and interests
    • makes interdisciplinary connections
    • encourages the investigation of real-life problems
    • promotes the examination of affective issues in the various subject areas
  2. Process Enrichment

    The GEP curriculum:

    • develops higher level thinking skills
    • provides opportunities for discovery and experiential learning
    • provides for open-ended problem solving
    • teaches research skills for independent study
    • uses varied teaching strategies to cater to different learning styles
    • provides for small group activities
  3. Product Enrichment

    The GEP curriculum:

    • encourages modes of presentations beyond traditional assignments
    • provides for creative expressions
    • reflects real-world variety
    • values authentic learning
  4. Learning Environment

    The GEP curriculum:

    • provides a supportive and learner-centred environment
    • supports risk-taking
    • provides a stimulating physical environment
    • provides out-of-school learning experiences (e.g. field trips and community involvement programmes)
    • provides out-of-school extensions (e.g. mentorship attachments in collaboration with tertiary institutions)
