12-18 years By now young people will have a clear idea about what their favourite subjects are. They will be selecting + taking GCSE’s and A levels which they are able to achieve. They may lack self-confidence or avoid situations in which they have to do subjects they don’t like and may even lead to truancy. It’s often important to teenagers that they feel good about themselves and they belong.
16-19 years By this time they leave school and will begin to think about career and university choices based on qualifications they have selected, Focus on areas of strength and look forward to developing these as they move on.

Social, Emotional and Behavioural Development
0-3 years Very young children will be starting to find out about their own identities. They will need to form a strong attachment, the earliest of which will be a parent/carer. In nursery, children are usually given a Key Worker who will be their main contact. At this stage they may start to have tantrums through frustration and will want to do things for themselves.
3-7 years Children will still be developing their identities. They will start to play with peers and socialise through imaginative play. This will help them develop their concept of different roles in their lives. They will need to learn the importance of boundaries and why they are necessary. They respond well to being given responsibility.
