`This resource was a very valuable tool in helping us to incorporate SEAL lessons into the PSHE curriculum for Years 7 and 8 this year...the activities are set within the context of research into social work and emotional aspects of learning conducted by the author, and, in practice, they work with the students! Feedback from our 7 and 8 students on these lessons was overwhelmingly positive' - Jenny Tinnelly, Henry Floyd Grammar School

Success at school is more than academic achievement. Personal and social development is just as important. To create this pack, Marilyn Tew led a fascinating project in British secondary schools to uncover how young people felt about school life, showing that, for most, it was personal and social success that was of primary importance.
This valuable resource pack takes the findings of Marilyn's research and builds them into exciting practical applications to help students develop self-awareness, self control, motivation and the understanding to get along with others. The additional TalkiT software makes it an essential, all-in-one resource for every school.
