What is SEL?

Social emotional learning (SEL) is a process through which students learn to manage their emotions, set goals, establish positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

SEL is increasingly being recognised as an essential component of education, and for good reason, with benefits including reduced negative behaviour, increased academic success and better mental health.

It’s not a separate subject, but more of a holistic approach to learning that is integrated into all aspects of a student's education.


The benefits of SEL

Manage negative behaviour

The reactive behavioural system that’s currently in place at most schools encourages repeat offences, wastes time and doesn’t address the root causes of bad behaviour. SEL teaches students how to actually behave better, a solution for the underlying problem.

Improve academic performance

Equip your students with the emotional management, communication and collaboration skills that lead to increased academic success. Studies have shown that SEL improves academic performance across all subjects and year groups.

Increase student social skills

SEL nurtures a student’s emotional intelligence as a way to improve their social skills, helping them develop positive, meaningful relationships with their peers, teachers and families.

Enhance wellbeing and mental health

Students who have the skills to manage their emotions and cope with stress are less likely to experience anxiety, depression and other mental health or wellbeing issues.

Boost life outcomes

Students who have strong social emotional skills are more likely to attend university, seek out apprenticeships and have successful careers. They are also more likely to have healthy relationships and lead happy, fulfilling lives.
