According to the Building Learning Power Official Website:

Building learning power is about helping young people to become better learners, both in school and out.

It is about creating a culture in classrooms - and in the school more widely - that systematically cultivates habits and attitudes that enable young people to face difficulty and uncertainty calmly, confidently and creatively.
