Emotional Intelligence In Education

With the need for an value of Emotional Intelligence becoming more accepted in schools and universities, we take a look at one Head Teacher of an OFSTED rated 'Outstanding' school and how developing emotionally intelligent teachers will benefit his school, staff, students and parents.

Emotional Intelligence training for teachers is something of a new development.  Why? Largely because head teachers are so focused on ensuring that their data, quality and outputs are sufficient to achieve the best possible OFSTED rating possible.  And, this is completely understandable.  Alongside the safeguarding of students, OFSTED is the number one priority for head teachers. 

Many schools are now exploring how emotional intelligence training can support their teaching and support staff to improve the quality of learning, help students manage disruptive emotional impulses and of course, unacceptable behaviour patterns too.  But one head teacher has gone one vital step further than many.  He has decided to apply emotional intelligence skills to how he and his staff communicate and collaborate with parents.

Take a look at how Mr Jim Inglis, Head Teacher of Altrincham C E Aided Primary School is focusing on improving the quality of teaching with emotional intelligence.
