During 25 months (November 2019-November 2021) RESET develops the following outputs:

Methodological Framework

A methodological framework forms the starting point for all further project activities. RESET Methodology is based on research on resilience and its importance for basic education, the effects of trauma, violence, and discrimination on learning processes, as well as a survey among basic education trainers on their perceptions regarding their professional challenges and strategies. It provides information on how to foster wellbeing among learners and suggests various self-care exercises for trainers


A curriculum, building on the methodology of storytelling, and a toolbox, containing games and exercises to promote resilience that are linked to:

  • key competence(s) of basic education, including  reading & writing, arithmetic  digital, and civic competences, as well as communication language skills amongst others.
  • resilience areas such as the regulation of emotions, affects and feelings, self-assessment, stress management, social skills and relationships, development of creativity etc.

Stories and worksheet

At the following link, you can download a set of materials (both stories used in the curriculum and worksheets for some activities) to be printed and used during the implementation of the curriculum activities


This toolbox is a collection of 80 resilience-fostering exercises and games for basic education learners,  with three degrees of difficulty based on language level (A0-B1). Each game is linked to one or more key competence(s) of basic education, such as communication and language skills, digital and civic competences. The games are both group and individual activities.

You can choose them according to one or more filters: resilience areas, basic education competence and language level.

Through playful pedagogy, participants will learn creativity and how to express their ideas. They will be encouraged to slip into unfamiliar (social, professional and private) roles and to vividly experiment with language and voice, while at the same time exploring their own limits and taking them seriously.

E-learning platform

An e-learning platform that allows for a broad dissemination of resilience-fostering methods for basic education trainers and offers audio context and exercises, promoting listening comprehension and digital skills of participants with basic educational needs.

Tutorials for basic educators

You can find several videos with highly innovative educational practices that you can adopt to help your learners strengthening their resilience and use it productively to meet challenges. The tutorials investigate and highlight the importance of resilience, especially in the context of basic education. At the same time, they provide ideas and concrete examples in order to support your learners and address the challenges they face.
