"Social and emotional learning (SEL)... can educate hearts, inspire minds, and help students navigate the world more effectively."


SELschools is being established as a non-profit, independent organisation providing free or low cost SEL training for teachers, staff and parents of early childhood, primary and secondary schools.

We believe...


...that high quality, ongoing SEL training for adults is vital to the effectiveness of student resilience, wellbeing and mental health initiatives such as BeYou, KidsMatter and Positive Education.

Educators who have been trained to explore their own resilience and emotional wellbeing are more likely to facilitate students’ social and emotional learning more effectively... yet few programs exist to help with this. 


To complement online learning that is often provided, 

SELschools practical and interactive small group workshops provide a broader, deeper and more personal understanding and experience ​of SEL so teachers and others can better lead students to develop their mental health.

Our SEL programs are the product of 20 years experience in evidence-based behavioural sciences including Emotional Intelligence, Positive Psychology, Neuroscience and Social and Emotional Learning.

We can tailor the length and content of our SEL training for an In-Service PD to meet the needs of your teacher, leader or parent groups:

  • free overview sessions of up to an hour 

  • three hour (half day) workshops - morning, afternoon or evening

  • full day programs

As an introductory offer, the cost of any In-Service PD workshop booked and run before 30 September 2021 will be a donation of any amount to help establish the SELschools organisation.
