Social Skills and Empathy are  Educational Issues

 

These are not just political or social issues, but educational ones as well. There has been a call amongst educational leaders to bring soft skills such as empathy back into education, and to make them a prime focus. We saw thought-leaders calling for these issues to be dealt with in education at this year’s Campus 2016.

 

Valuing diversity and tackling social exclusion were two of the most powerful talks at this year’s event which made an impact on the audience of 700 teachers and students. 

 

‘The significance of empathy, human interaction and authentic care for one another were clearly present in the speeches of the expert keynote speakers at the Campus Seminar. The speeches were inspirational, energetic, comforting and gave hope.’
