Flashback to the CTBM team in 2015. Good times!

Did you know COOL TO BE ME has been working in the area of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) for 9 years!

Over that time we have developed our:

  1. School curriculum that engages educators, parents and learners in SEL.

  2. SACE accredited CPTD (Continued Professional Teacher Development) course.

  3. COOL TO BE ME @home programme.

  4. Team of SEL specialists, trained to support schools with SEL integration.


Our COOL TO BE ME school curriculum engages educators and parents in teaching learners the core SEL competencies of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision making systematically from Grade 1 to Grade 7. Each of our programmes are taught via easy to follow teacher’s manuals, supported by a set of storybooks with family chats and games for grades 1-3 and a journal including a ‘with my family’ section for grades 4-6. COOL TO BE ME covers critical aspects of the current Life Skills subject taught in schools.  http://www.cooltobeme.com/programmes/introduction/


CTBM is the accredited resource for an online SEL course focusing on The ‘what’ and ‘why’ of SEL and how it can be integrated into all aspects of school life: curriculum, teaching practice and classroom management. The course offers teachers 45 SACE accredited CPTD points on completion and costs R400, inclusive of your grade appropriate COOL TO BE ME teacher’s manual in Ebook format. The course can be completed individually or collaboratively as a grade or phase. There is a significant benefit to the ‘whole grade or phase’ approach, which is why we offer significant discounts by bulk purchases. http://trainingteachers.org.za/courses/social-emotional-learning/


COOL TO BE ME @Home covers the same content as the school curriculum but in a format that enables parents to engage one on one with their children at home. This is ideal for home school parents, or children who need additional help or parents who are eager to have cool conversations with their children and facilitate their social and emotional well-being. http://www.cooltobeme.com/at-home/our-educational-boxes/


Starting something can feel daunting and overwhelming, which is why COOL TO BE ME have been building a team of specially trained SEL specialist who can support you school in becoming socially and emotionally integrated.
