The impact of research on government policy regarding SEAL and AfA

Impact: Societal impacts, Political impacts


The research impacted on the Coalition Government’s decisions to (a) discontinue the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) national strategy (2011), and (b) roll out the Achievement for All (AfA) pilot programme at a national level (2011). Both of these major decisions on public policy and professional practice were underpinned by the findings of large-scale national evaluation projects.
