A Supported Qualification Programme: Specialists in Social Emotional Development Practice!

SEDi provides and qualification and continuing professional development (CPD) programme which establishes and then nurtures specialists in creating Emotional Safety, and building Emotional Resilience. We recognised the international gap in the market, where professionals and volunteers need to be able to learn and then fully embed their skills within real-life, to be the practical specialists within fast moving and emotionally charged environments.

We joined forces with TWO leading brands to create a 27-month, fully supported qualification and CPD pathway which can globally support Public, Private and Third Sector teams to establish a much needed specialist capability – able to guide and support the building of Emotional Resilience, within emotionally safe environments.

Our SEDS Qualification Programme deliberately sets the bar high! New standards of specialist competency which will support the creation of Emotional Safety around the world. We’re creating and supporting a global community of qualified specialists to become the trusted professionals, leaders to drive a reduction in mental health issues, disengagement, and destructive behaviours within society, work and domestic environments.

SEDS Qualification Programme is available globally!

Qualified specialists are required within Human Development, Health & Safety, Learning & Development, Safeguarding, Health and Social Care.

SEDS is a proprietary qualification, a world first for professionals and volunteers internationally.

Stage 1 - Practical Assessment Based, Regulated Qualification

We run quarterly SEDS cohorts within Europe, the Middle East and Africa, establishing learner groups within a 3-month regulated qualification process. This rigorously managed, multi-module learning and development pathway supports individuals via a “learn, review, refine” approach, which enables them to hone their knowledge in real-time.

Below is the structure of Stage 1 of the programme:

Curriculum of Specialist Subjects

SEDS is grounded in the rigor of emotional science, distilled into modules and delivered through a facilitated blended learning and development process. There are THREE specialist subjects:

Emotions: the science behind emotions, first how the brain and emotions are linked, then breaking down the definitions and identification of emotions. Lastly spotting universal emotions in others and correctly identifying the types of emotions experiences being witnessed;

Emotional Needs: the science behind the powerful area of human needs, firstly what the universal needs are and how they drive powerful emotions and thinking, then the process of mapping and analysing prevailing positive/negative emotional experiences;

Social Emotional Skills: the science behind emotional intelligence, firstly the construct of emotional competencies which break-down into building blocks to clusters into powerful social emotional skills, which then can be developed to forge a measurable emotional resilience.

From the very beginning, individual learning and development is mapped-onto an identified end point – an desired outcome. This focuses the potential specialist upon applying the knowledge to where the real-world challenges are, and any strategic/operational objectives to be underpinned. During the modules, this real-world becomes the base for the learning, which means that within a very short period the learning begins to make an impact which can be recorded and reviewed.

The qualification is 70% assessment, across 3 subject units, where we are looking for evidence of understanding and of practical application. The final “SEDS Assessment Day” pulls together everything together, and is where the final 30% of the qualification is completed.

Stage 2 – Continuing Professional Development

There’s More!

The qualification is not the end of the journey.

The entire Stage 1 process has developed and mapped-onto a clear final outcome for the specialist to pick up once qualified. During the SEDS Assessment Day, every individual presents their learning journal and how they’ve mapped this onto a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) plan – where they will be taking their qualification and what they desire to achieve.

SEDi provides all newly qualified specialists with the support they need to embed their skills and broaden their impact. Over 24 months they are provided a unique access to the SEDi learning environment and community of experts, to achieve an unparalleled CPD.
