HOPEs team is implementing national piloting sessions. A total number of 120 teachers from primary education participate in the HOPEs training process and receive useful materials for their classrooms. The trainings are held during January – March, 2018 in all participating countries (Cyprus, Ireland, Portugal, Greece and Malta).
Following the completion of the pilot testing seminar questionnaires are provided to the teachers in order to measure the effectiveness of the new curriculum and methodology in particular.
All involved partners prepare a country evaluation report based on comments and feedback received by the local trainees. Emphasis is given to strengths and weaknesses of the package and the perceptions of teachers for the programme (i.e. practicality and usefulness, overall level of satisfaction from this experience, suggestions for improvement etc.).
