San Francisco, 20 November 2023: The ReportSocial And Emotional Learning (SEL) Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Component (Solutions, Services), By End-user, By Type, By Core Competencies, By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2023 - 2030

The global social and emotional learning market size is expected to reach USD 12.90 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The industry is anticipated to expand at a lucrative CAGR of 24.3% from 2023 to 2030. Social and emotional learning (SEL) is a process through which all adults and young people apply and acquire the necessary attitudes, knowledge, and skills to manage emotions, develop healthy identities, achieve collective and personal goals, show empathy for others, and make caring and responsible decisions.

SEL focuses on empowering educators with tools and resources to incorporate skill development rooted in the five SEL competencies – responsible decision-making, self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship-making – into their classrooms. For instance, in October 2022, CASEL, an organization fostering the development of academic, social, and emotional competency in all students, noted in their survey that 82% of educators agreed that a well-designed, fully integrated SEL approach has an influence in the post-pandemic period. Furthermore, it enables bringing social-emotional awareness to the academic system in schools.

The benefits of investing in social-emotional learning are increasingly becoming evident. Educators, business leaders, parents, and the federal state recognize the need of enhancing SEL skills in children through education and programs. By investing in SEL programs, educators and children increase their productivity and gain tremendous economic benefits. For instance, in May 2022, Columbia University, a private university in New York, concluded in a research study that the SEL program can offer a 1:11 return on investment. SEL is not only an essential investment for students but also a good financial investment.

SEL focuses on developing interpersonal skills, self-awareness, social awareness, responsible decision-making, self-management, and relationship skills that are vital for success in work, school, and life. It offers a foundation for long-term positive effects on communities, kids, and adults. For instance, Conquering Kindergarten is a provider of development resources for families and teachers in the U.S. to help teach children SEL skills.

In November 2022, the company announced the launch of a customizable toolkit to support teachers and families in promoting SEL. It involves the compilation of a reading list specific to each skill into a personalized toolkit, tricks, and research-based tips. Furthermore, the resources are tailored to in-classroom or at-home use, based on the user's selections. The skills offered include self-awareness, social awareness, responsible decision-making, self-management, relationship skills, social engagement skills, getting along well with others, and working independently.

SEL is the process through which youth, children, and adults effectively acquire the attitudes, knowledge, and skills necessary to manage and understand emotions, feel & show empathy for others, make responsible decisions, achieve positive goals, and maintain positive relationships. The COVID-19 pandemic has emphasized the significance of SEL and addressed the need for a more comprehensive approach to kids' learning and development.

For instance, in June 2021, Kinful, a web development studio offering social and emotional learning programs, surveyed schools increasingly turning to SEL programs. The survey stated that students who take part in school-based social and emotional learning programs have benefits over their peers who do not experience any such involvement in SEL.
