We focus on the Student

Our PSHE & Families programmes help your students develop and improve social-emotional literacy (SEL) and soft skills including self-efficacy, metacognition and self-regulation.

We support Schools

Schools and parents are equally invested in their children’s education – and more than ever since the pandemic. Parents often reach out to school for guidance; they want to work with you!

Equip your teachers with a comprehensive bank of practical family strategies, linked to their child’s steer data, so that parents and teachers can be aligned in their approach.

We use a research based approach

Two doctoral studies were conducted by STEERs founders to build Footprints Curriculum and Family Signposts as effective programmes to develop young people’s self-regulation, metacognition and emotional resilience.
