BACKGROUND

I-YES project "Improve Your Emotional Skills" is part of the European program ERASMUS + for education and training. This project will be conducted between September 2015 and August 2017.


Researchers, such as Patricia Broderick, have shown that academic achievement works in conjunction with

- the development of soft skills that is to say emotional and social competences;

- behavioural skills such as self-control, social awareness or relational development.:

A Commission strategy dating from 2012 «rethink education" had already highlighted such important aspect.

As a reminder, soft skills, oriented towards human interactions - unlike the intellectually quotient- involve emotional intelligence and play a key role in the development of an individual within his environment.
