Northern Ireland

​PATHS® Education UK has been delivering The PATHS® Programme for Schools (UK Version) in 64 schools across Northern Ireland.

Between 2008-2012, 12 schools across the Craigavon and Lurgan areas took part in a Randomised Controlled Trial of PATHS®. A further 10 schools began implementing in Greater Belfast from 2013 and PATHS® has grown from strength to strength across Northern Ireland since then. We now have a further 14 schools in the Greater Belfast area, and 28 schools across the West of Northern Ireland (Enniskillen, Omagh, Strabane, Derry/Londonderry and Limavady). We also have a waiting list of schools for a September 2015 start!

It is very clear the impact of the PATHS® Programme. The PATHS® programme is evidently developing in our children: respect; own rules for sport/play; kindness; playing fair; social justice and teamwork skills. It is developing skills for 21st Century adults! This is a cutting edge programme - part of PDMU.

Pupils learn to manage and control their emotions which leads to calmer classrooms and playground, by using the Control Signals and [PATHS®] techniques.
