Key Aspects Of Learning

The Key Aspects of Learning, integral to the Primary National Strategy, are twelve essential ‘learning to learn’ skills. They include the Social and Emotional Aspects of Leaerning (SEAL): empathy, managing feelings, motivation, self-awareness and social skills. The other seven are: communication, creative thinking, enquiry, evaluation, information processing, problem-solving and reasoning.

ThinQ Education promotes the Key Aspects of Learning as essential skills for learning, leadership and life: essential not just for school but in preparing children for the rest of their lives.
