In order to systematically plan to promote social and emotional skills it helps to categorise them and this National Strategies resource does this within five aspects of learning, based upon Daniel Goleman’s classification (Goleman, 1996). Each aspect is subdivided into skills and then still further into a series of learning outcomes. The list provided is not exhaustive and a school might choose to modify and adapt this in the light of the needs of the school as identified by the students or other members of the community.
