It is widely recognized that Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others. Emotional Intelligence inherently includes some essential skills, the most important of which are emotional awareness and the abilities to harness and manage emotions. The concept of EI has been embraced by many educators and educational institutions, in the last 20 years, in the form of programmes and modules focusing on ‘social & emotional learning’ skills (SEL). It is worth mentioning that many US states have introduced SEL learning as mandatory in the curriculum. In 2002 UNESCO has initiated a worldwide initiative to promote SEL, emphasizing on the importance of someone mastering these essential skills for living. ‘Emotional Intelligence: identify, harness & manage emotions’ equips the participants with knowledge related to the ten basic principles for implementing SEL in educational settings as well as practical tools for managing emotions, recognize others’ emotions and understand the relationship between thoughts and emotions. Moreover, the participants will be hugely benefited by in depth knowledge of classroom related SEL skills, such as listening and talking in ways that resolve conflicts instead of escalating them. This is a masterclass course for school principals, teachers, educators, trainers, business managers & parents.

The course methodology will ensure the active involvement of the participants in all phases, that is, prior, during and after the delivery of the course. More specifically, upon confirmation that the course will take place, the participants will receive preparatory material (if needed), which will cover all important concepts to be presented during the delivery of the course. The participants will have the opportunity to exchange feedback with the organizer of the course, BlueCore Academy, and the trainer as well as to request any clarification related to the content of the course.
The methodology of the training is based on a combination of three important elements:
• • Provision of knowledge required (theory)
• • Use of training tools, such as case studies, videos, games, animations & exercises (practice – hands on experience)
• • Feedback/reflection (review)

During the delivery of the course, the participants will receive hard copy material, which will cover the content to be presented in all five (5) days of the seminar. The material will be presented in a form of Power Point (PPT) presentations, videos & animations. Moreover, the active involvement and hands on experience of the participants will be secured through various training tools, such as case studies, worksheets, scenarios & exercises. These training tools are necessary to ensure that the theoretical knowledge gained by the participants can be used in real life scenarios; an important aspect & added value for any training course.
At the final day of the course, the participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the information received and the experience gained in the specific field of study. Moreover, the participants and their institutions will be encouraged to be members of BlueCore Academy’, an international hub and forum for entrepreneurs & innovators to exchange ideas, novel concepts/approaches & best practices in the area of environment and education.
