Emotional intelligence is a predictive factor of wellbeing among teachers. The discussion therefore focuses on the pertinence of, and need for, developing competences in Secondary Education teachers. This involves the design, implementation and evaluation of two training programmes linked to conflict management and the promotion of emotional competences.
The efficacy of the training programmes is studied through the adoption of a pre-experimental type research design with pre/post-test measures. The results obtained following the application of both these programmes show statistically significant changes (p < .05) in the different dimensions of competence. It is therefore concluded that there is empirical evidence to support the hypothesis that emotional competence is enhanced by appropriate educational experiences, empowering teachers to face the challenges of their classroom practices.
