At BRIC, we are passionate about equipping parents, educators, and caregivers with the knowledge, tools, and strategies needed to foster resilience in children. We understand that every child is unique, and our mission is to provide a comprehensive resource hub where you can explore various aspects of resilience-building, tailored to your child's age, personality, and individual needs.
Through our curated articles, insightful blog posts, and expert interviews, we aim to offer evidence-based insights and practical advice on cultivating resilience in children. Our content covers a wide range of topics, including emotional intelligence, problem-solving skills, positive mindset, stress management, and healthy coping mechanisms.

About BRIC

In this project we are working closely with primary schools in Leicester and our partners have extensive experience in working with school children and families. The aim of the project is to examine the best ways to develop resilience skills within children aged 7-11 years, collect first hand data from participants and cocreate a children story book with characters that is reflective of our society.

Resilience is more than bouncing back. Through this project we aim to address the culturally intelligent diverse pathways that we need to survive in a multicultural world. The project aims to teach children to embrace challenges and see them as a growth opportunity. It aims to get children thinking about commitment, control, positive attitude, growth mindset, reviewing actions, learning from mistakes, learning to relax, boost self-confidence and self-esteem.

Global Educational Assets:
Region-Specific Teaching and Learning Resources

International resources play a crucial role in enhancing teaching and learning in primary schools by providing educators with a wide range of materials, tools, and methodologies to support effective instruction. These resources encompass various mediums, such as textbooks, digital platforms, educational websites, and educational software. They often incorporate diverse perspectives, multicultural content, and global perspectives, enabling students to develop a broader understanding of the world around them. Additionally, international resources offer innovative teaching strategies and approaches that promote active learning, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. By accessing these resources, primary school teachers can introduce engaging and interactive activities, utilise multimedia materials, and incorporate real-life examples from different cultures and countries. Ultimately, international resources serve as invaluable assets for educators, fostering inclusive and globally oriented learning environments that prepare students for an interconnected and diverse world.
