COU136 Social and Emotional Learning twilight
Free online twilight event
Research has shown that good social and emotional skills — including self-regulation, self-awareness, and social skills — developed by the age of ten, are predictors of a range of adult outcomes, such as life satisfaction and wellbeing, labour market success, and good overall health. However, many of our disadvantaged children have, on average, weaker social and emotional skills at all ages.
Few teachers receive support on how they can develop these skills in their everyday teaching practice and therefore this twilight is designed to support teachers to develop their skills and their understanding of social and emotional learning in the primary classroom.
