SECD Teacher and Administrator Certificate Program

How do we strengthen basic academic skills, increase higher-order thinking, and caution against the dangers of substance abuse and violence, all while promoting appreciation and respect for diversity? And how do we do this in the face of increasing pressure to accomplish many mandates in our classrooms, student groups, and after-school programs?

To help school personnel respond to these challenges, the Academy for Social-Emotional Learning in Schools is now offering its Certificate in Instruction for Social-Emotional and Character Development (SECD). This unique, continuing professional education program prepares educational professionals—teachers, school support personnel, out-of-school program staff- with a solid foundation and applicable skills to help their schools become more positive places for children to learn, adults to teach, and all to thrive.

Similarly, today’s school leaders face great challenges. How do we strengthen basic skills, increase higher-order thinking, and warn about the dangers of substance abuse and violence, all while promoting appreciation and respect for diversity? Simply put, how do we help our children thrive academically, socially, and emotionally? And how do we do this in the face of budget crunches and federal and state mandates?

To help school leaders respond to these challenges, the Academy for Social-Emotional Learning in Schools is now offering its Certificate in School Leadership for Social-Emotional Learning and Character Development. The certificate program prepares educational professionals to help their schools become more positive places for children to learn, adults to teach, and all to thrive.

All graduates of the certificate programs get access to an online professional learning community of SEL/SECD experts—your Virtual Professional Learning Community.
