The SSTEW Scale has been used in the recent Study of Early Educational Development (SEED) research looking at the quality of provision and practice related to Sustained Shared Thinking and the Emotional well-being of children.
This focuses on how the adults – practitioners and teachers – support children’s language for thinking and social and emotional well-being.

It confirms the crucial message that children’s early learning is secured through their personal, social and emotional development. SSTEW involves using a self-evaluation scale which covers:
  • Building trust, confidence and independence
  • Social and emotional well-being
  • Supporting and extending language and communication
  • Supporting learning and critical thinking
  • Assessing learning and language

 In the most effective early years settings staff provide opportunities to sustain and challenge children's thinking and to model this for children to share with other children.

Course contents will:
  • Explore what is sustained shared thinking
  • Explore how practitioners can support and promote sustained shared thinking in their settings?
This workshop will provide practitioners with knowledge and practical strategies to support children's sustained shared thinking.
