Unlock the Power of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in Education

Social and emotional learning (SEL)

Description: The research shows that people with strong social-emotional skills are better able to cope with everyday challenges and benefit academically, professionally, and socially. From effective problem-solving to self-discipline, from impulse control to emotion management and more, SEL provides a foundation for positive, long-term effects on children, adults, and communities.

Thus, this engaging and comprehensive training course is designed to equip participants with the knowledge, skills, and practical strategies needed to effectively incorporate Social Emotional Learning (SEL) into their educational settings. Through interactive sessions, participants will gain valuable insights into creating an emotionally safe classroom environment, teaching self-awareness and self-management skills, fostering social awareness and relationship skills, and integrating SEL into daily curriculum planning and lesson design.

By the end of the course, teachers will be equipped with a toolbox of practical resources, assessment techniques, and evidence-based practices to support their students' social and emotional growth.

Valuable experience – improving my personal qualities and teaching skills.

It was perfect - the subject, the trainer, the team! 

I've learned new things, developed new skills and I believe I have more tools now to become a better teacher!

I liked the way the course was structured and how the trainer combined the theory and practise!
