Responsible Education

Responsible Education

It is a program developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of the Government of Cantabria that favours the physical, emotional, intellectual and social growth of people, promotes communication and improves coexistence in schools based on work with teachers, students and families.

  • Know and trust themselves
  • Understand others.
  • Recognize and express emotions and ideas.
  • Develop self-control.
  • Learn to make responsible decisions.
  • Value and take care of your health.
  • Improve your social skills

Programme Evaluation

A number of research show the benefits of emotional education in the learning, well-being and integral development of students. The intensive application of the Fundación Botin’s Responsible Education programme is externally evaluated to determine its impact on the classroom.

Thus, periodically, two types of external evaluations are carried out: pedagogical and psychological, which you SEE HERE.

«Being a trainer in the Fundación Botin’s Responsible Education programme has been a very rewarding experience. It has given me the opportunity to get to know in greater depth the teachers who are starting in this wonderful adventure and to verify that both they and I share the same illusion, the attempt to improve every day, enrich our teaching practice, prevent conflicts, learn from each other and enjoy ».Pepa Rocha Medinarefle, trainer in the RE programme in Murcia.
