Teaching Emotional Literacy

Thursday, June 6, 2024 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
There is a missing foundation in education – one of emotional literacy.

This missing foundation is not just our pupils’, but ours too. It is this ability to understand ourselves and those around us, and adapt accordingly, which teacher and author Richard Evans believes underpins everything pupils and educators try to achieve at school.

In this twilight session Richard will show you how emotional literacy can be taught in schools through a process of deep listening, empathy and joint problem-solving. He will share with you his passport – a resource which helps staff work with students to unpick their barriers to engagement and learning. He will describe the impact it’s had in his and other educators’ practice and show you how it can be tailored for your own school’s needs.

Target Audience: Headteachers, Deputy Heads, SENCOs, Pastoral Leads

Training objectives
