This publication reviews the latest research on Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), its impact on student health and school climate and its transformative role in building happier classrooms. It serves as a guidance to teachers, policymakers, parents and learners on what constitutes key characteristics of a ‘good’ SEL framework. The evidence provided by this review is not only robust and compelling but advocates an urgent need to mainstream SEL in education systems, to ensure both mental well-being and improve academic growth.
