Of schools say STEER cohort action plans give teachers practical strategies to support their students

STEER was set up 20 years ago by two founders, to teach children to steer the road of adolescence…

Our background

STEER was founded by Dr Simon and Dr Jo Walker to build a new generation of social-emotional applications to prepare young people with the human skills to thrive in life. Combining education and psychology backgrounds they set out to solve three big challenges.

First, how to identify young people with mental health risks early, and before they need specialist support. Second, how to reliably measure the impact of schools on students social-emotional development. Third, how to empower young people with skills to steer the road of adolescence for themselves.

Making an impact

Over the years STEER has had a growing positive impact across young people in mainstream and specialist schools, elite sports academies and schools in deprived settings. We support children from the age of 8 right up to 18.

During the pandemic, we helped hundreds of schools in more than 15 countries track and support their students during lockdown. More than 10,000 teachers have completed our online training programme. We currently safeguard the mental health of more than 70,000 students.

Webinar – Bede’s School

Bede’s started tracking their pupils 3 years ago and over that time they’ve tracked and supported thousands of students and trained over 100 tutors and teachers.

Peter Goodyer, CEO of the Bede’s School Trust, Alex Murphy, Assistant Head and Annabel Hodge, Director of Safeguarding, share how AS Tracking helped them detect pupils’ hidden safeguarding risks earlier.
