In the project we are working together to reduce early school leaving by introducing Emotional Intelligence (EI) in education and guidance programs.
Dropping out of school is a persistent phenomenon in Europe and is considered a real challenge. Personal frustration, actual loss of potential employees for the job market and the relation between emotional growth and dropping out of school are the main incentives for the participating partners to take part in this exchange. They are all convinced that it is of the utmost importance that emotional intelligence training should be an integral part of the school curriculums or be a part of guidance programs. In time, this will have a positive effect on the reduction of school drop-outs, a positive effect on students and it will improve the quality of their time at school as well as opportunities in the job market.
- Awareness concerning the importance of emotional intelligence.
- Recognizability in the curriculum and/or student guidance.
- A minimum of 2 teachers/coaches per school have been trained and thus can endorse their knowhow/skills.
- Every partner has made a start with carrying out a train-the trainer program on how to handle emotional intelligence.
The role of STEP Institute
STEP Institute is in charge of the train-the trainer program that will provide practical techniques for teaching emotional intelligence.
