By component, the solutions segment to record a larger market size during the forecast period
SEL solutions comprise the SEL platform and the SEL assessment tool. SEL platform is used by educators (school/districts, teachers, parents, and communities) to help students work on their emotions, feelings, empathy, relationships, goals, responsibilities, and make informed decisions. With the rise in the cases of COVID-19, the adoption of SEL solutions has taken a beating. There are a lot of SEL stakeholders, such as schools, districts, and NGOs, where most of the day-to-day activities are being hampered due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In recent years, the adoption of SEL platforms is growing at a higher rate owing to their capability of integrating new solutions with the current platform. However, these platforms are more expensive as compared to standalone software. The COVID-19 pandemic has reduced spending on non-essential things and saved money to further deal with the economic crisis. Hence, it has affected the spending on SEL.
By end user, the pre-K segment to record the highest growth rate during the forecast period
Principals, teachers, and policymakers have shown interest in implementing SEL into the pre-K curriculum. All pre-K students across the world are currently missing face-to-face instructions due to COVID-19. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), over 421 million children are affected as of March 2020, due to school closures implemented in 39 countries. Another 22 countries have implemented partial ‘localized’ closures. However, UNESCO is helping countries across the globe to mitigate the immediate impact of school closures by facilitating the continuity of education for all educational institutes through remote learning. The remote pre-K SEL curriculum has helped kids to develop social skills, build a positive relationship with families and peers, prevent techniques from challenging behavior, and enhance knowledge with free online platforms offered by various companies. SEL programs offered by various companies through their videos and different activities have helped pre-K students to create a positive environment, ignore negative people, and learn new skills.
