This research wishes to investigate strategies used by boys’ post-primary schools to develop boys’ emotional intelligence.

Four key areas will be addressed:
1.Self-awareness.
2.Self-regulation.
3.Motivation.
4.Empathy.

The research will look at opportunities to develop such skills within the formal curriculum and the less formal hidden curriculum.
The research will include schools from North and South, and will investigate teachers’ perceptions of effective strategies and current practice, with a view to informing and sharing future best practice.
