NT Social and Emotional Learning

Northern Territory Social and Emotional Learning (NT SEL)

NT SEL refers to the combined use of two resources:

  • Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships learning materials produced by the Victorian Department of Education and Training. This is the core teaching resource.
  • NT SEL Supplementary Resources. These are contextualised support resources that are used in conjunction with the Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships learning materials.

Together, the two resources support the social and emotional learning of Early Years (Transition to Year 2), Primary Years (Years 3-6), Middle Years (Years 7-9) and Senior Years (Years 10-12) students.

The resources cover key topics affecting students’ social and emotional wellbeing, including emotional literacy, personal strengths, positive coping, problem solving, stress management, help seeking, gender and identity, and positive gender relationships.
