Prospects of Social and Emotional Learning in NUS

  • The project was implemented with the support of the International Renaissance Foundation.
  • Implementation period: 2020-2021
"We all want happiness and success for our children. We all want healthy relationships, mutual respect and cooperation to prevail in society. To do this, the school should provide to children not only knowledge, but also soft skills, including resilience, ability to work in teams, solve complex problems and not succumb to difficulties. Social and emotional learning is a good tool that allows schools to do this. Unfortunately, teachers have not yet fully mastered it, though research shows that teachers are open to the new and ready to learn more"
