Various terms are used to describe Social and Emotional Learning including personal and social development, emotional literacy, emotional intelligence, social and emotional competence and social, emotional and behavioural skills.
Social and emotional learning is a process for helping students develop the knowledge, understandings and skills that support learning, positive behaviour and constructive social relationships.
Social and emotional learning is an approach that teaches students to recognise, regulate and express the social and emotional aspects of their lives so they can operate successfully in the world and manage life tasks.
To operate successfully in the social world, students must build knowledge and understanding of their identity, how relationships are developed and the impact of social contexts on their decision making and behaviour.
