Covid-19 has highlighted how the human touch is essential in today's classrooms. To help young people make consistently good choices and live healthily we provide empowering resources suitable for children aged from 4 to 14. They foster lasting, life-enriching values, which contribute to a modern, integrated, ethical, moral, emotional, social and spiritual education, laying foundations that enable all young people to fully flourish and make the most of themselves throughout their school careers and subsequently in their adult lives.
We provide teaching resources with a special human dimension that enable children aged from 4 to 14 to flourish and look after what they value, including their own health and wellbeing. Learning to use inspiring values progressively develops key emotional and social skills so that young citizens can form strong, positive relationships and make the most of their education, achieving both academically and in all other aspects of their day-to-day lives, particularly those involving their individual talents, passions and interests. The knowledge and skills built up over time lay solid foundations for enjoying fulfilling, happy, productive lives.
Our values-themed teaching resources are used extensively in mainstream schools throughout the UK and in other parts of the world.
With changes in technology and more personalised learning, our programme, THE BIG THINK, provides multi-media, life-enriching lesson plans for children aged 5 to 11. With your support we can ensure both the content and delivery format are kept up-to-date so as to maintain the quality and appeal of our innovative resource and continue to contribute to the advancement and effectiveness of education and teachers' work towards nurturing rounded, well-balanced young citizens, who feel properly equipped for life in the 21st century now and as the future unfolds.
Especially after the trauma of the Covid-19 outbreak, teaching social and emotional skills is no longer an option but proving very challenging for many schools. Our online training and the experiential learning modules in THE BIG THINK build teachers' confidence in handling the emotional and social aspects of children's development - now recognised as an essential part of the school curriculum on account of how it nurtures children's characters, personal qualities and skills needed to thrive at school, at home, in the community and later on, in the workplace.
