We are very proud to announce that Leader in Me is now an approved CASEL SELect program for schools..
Leader in Me (LiM) is a whole-school transformation model and process developed in partnership with educators and offered through United Education Group. Leader in Me empowers pupils with the social and emotional learning (SEL) leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.
In March 2018, the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) endorsed Leader in Me as a “CASEL SELect” program (their program-certification title). This designation follows an intensive analysis of Leader in Me by CASEL reviewers to determine that the program met their quality and evidence criteria.
CASEL is the leading authority in the advancement of SEL in education. CASEL’s focus on empirical evidence and extensive collaborative efforts has made it the trusted source for educational administrators and policymakers seeking guidance on effectively advancing social and emotional learning in their pupils. CASEL has been reviewing SEL programs for over a decade through an increasingly rigorous selection process.
As a CASEL SELect program, Leader in Me meets the following criteria:
- A well-designed program that provides schools with a systematic classroom-based model promoting the development of a pupil’s social and emotional competence across multiple years.
- Offers high-quality professional development and implementation support that ensure the school is equipped to effectively implement the program.
- One or more carefully conducted research evaluations of program impacts have been conducted and documents positive impacts on pupil’s behaviour and/or academic performance.
We are thrilled for all our existing Leader in Me schools in the UK as this is a great endorsement for the staff and pupils.
The number of UK schools implementing the Leader in Me is growing, if you would like our Chairman to visit your school please do get in touch on 0208 335 6670.
