As an educator, you possess the power to shape your students’ lives beyond the classroom, nurturing their long-term success and wellbeing. Today, we want to highlight the pivotal role of social-emotional learning (SEL) in equipping students with the skills they need to triumph over life’s challenges and thrive in the future.


Research consistently demonstrates that students who develop strong social and emotional skills through SEL experience countless benefits that extend far beyond academics. According to research conducted by Microsoft and McKinsey & Company, the fastest-growing occupations will demand higher-level cognitive skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity. It is expected that explicit social-emotional skills will be required for 30 to 40 % of jobs, yet less than 50% of students will be adequately prepared for these positions.


Incorporating more SEL into your student’s daily diet could make a real difference to their outcomes, and askOLA makes it easy. By engaging with askOLA, not only can your students access subject specialists for help with their schoolwork, but they can also work on their Social and Emotional Learning. You can empower your students to become resilient, confident, and emotionally intelligent individuals for less than 16p per student for the average secondary school.

Here’s how we can help:

  • Holistic Approach: askOLA embraces a holistic approach to education, recognising the interconnectedness of academic success and mental wellbeing. We offer a comprehensive suite of resources, tools, and support to address the diverse social and emotional needs of your students.
  • Skill Development: Through askOLA, students engage in activities, discussions, and reflective exercises that cultivate crucial social and emotional skills. They learn to manage their emotions, make responsible decisions, and communicate effectively — essential abilities for navigating personal and professional challenges.
  • Individualised Support: askOLA understands that each student’s journey is unique. Our platform provides personalised support and resources tailored to each student’s social-emotional growth and wellbeing. Students can access guidance, counselling services through our partners at Kooth, and self-help resources whenever they need them, ensuring a supportive network during challenging times.
  • Lifelong Resilience: By fostering social-emotional learning and resilience, askOLA equips students with the tools to overcome adversity, manage stress, and adapt to changing circumstances throughout their lives. These invaluable skills contribute to long-term success, both personally and professionally.


Join the askOLA community and make a lasting impact on your students’ lives. By integrating social-emotional learning into your school, you’ll provide them with the foundation they need to thrive in an ever-changing world.

Working with our community and their feedback, we’ve added efficiencies which have allowed us to reduce the price of all askOLA subscriptions, making it more equitable, and even more affordable for schools of all sizes.

Our new pricing structure is as follows:

  • £995 + VAT for small schools (less than 500 students)
