Handling and managing students’ emotions is a big part of a teacher’s job, and if done incorrectly can be emotionally and physically draining – affecting the teacher’s health and stress levels.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) can help teachers to create a calmer class environment, model healthy emotions and behaviours and inspire students to achieve higher. The teacher is able to connect emotionally with their students and know how best to teach and deliver lessons.
Developing emotional intelligence skills for the classroom can boost your teachers’ motivation levels, self-confidence, goal achievement abilities, and ultimately their job performance.
EQ Training for Teachers
This training helps teachers learn how to handle their emotions, and those of their students to resolve challenging situations inside and outside the classroom.
Teachers learn practical EQ strategies to create a positive class environment, connect on an emotional level with their students and learn how to defuse challenging situations.
We deliver the training in a format that’s easy to understand and implement. The training delivers practical tips that teachers can apply immediately.
Customised training sessions for teachers
We conduct sessions for teachers during term time, and training is customised to your school’s requirements. Contact EQ Academy for more information.
