Socialisation plays a critical and fundamental role in shaping human behaviour and character so that an individual is able to fit in and function properly within a societal context.

Therefore, this paper will first define what socialisation is. In addition it will explain the outcomes or consequences of socialisation by citing relevant examples.

Samantaray (1971) researches on teacher effectiveness have established the fact that teachers attitude and teachers effectiveness are positively related. Examples of these attitudes include wanting to teach and “doing it from the heart” enjoying the work, being dedicated to the job and to the children. Positive attitudes towards teaching and one’s own performance can in my view significantly contribute to classroom success; there is also the positive interpersonal relationship which is necessary to foster a connection between the teacher and students. Participating in student activities, enjoy being with them, caring for them, being interested in them and trusting them displays a positive attitude. Hence the fact that research has shown that “Success in the classroom is mapped to positive behaviours.” Samantaray (1971).
In the contract, students and teachers decide and agree on how to treat one another in the classroom. The group also decides on and agrees to what the group will do if someone violates the contract. Rather than a consequence, the group should decide how to fix the problem through either class discussion, peer mediation, counseling, or by one on one conversations leading to a solution to the situation. Preventive techniques also involve the strategic use of praise and rewards to inform students about their behavior rather than as a means of controlling student behavior. To use rewards to inform students about their behavior, teachers must emphasize the value of the behavior that is rewarded and also explain to students the specific skills they demonstrated to earn the reward.

The stability of Human capabilities is achieved through family structures and basic provisions such as education, housing, nutrition and security. Human capability also plays a role in making education a tool to ensure economic growth, individual development as well as empowering citizens and ensuring that resources and employment opportunities are equally distributed. Even though human capability is proven to be effective there are setbacks that can be experienced for example an uneducated or disabled individual may be limited when it comes to job opportunities or making decision because of their inabilities(Deneulin & Shahani,
In education, creativity is vital as literacy it should be treated with similar status. Successful people are those who possess creative skills, which they use in generating a vision on how they want to create a better world for every person. In a world where suitable design is applied widely as a method of differentiating products of mass generation, skills for creative designs are widely desired in the job market. Students should have innovative and creative minds for them to be ready to face the future. Innovation has a social element and it needs teamwork, leadership, interpersonal skills and adaptability.
