Work Package 1: Needs Assessment
The Consortium will carry out a state-of-the-art literature review and needs assessment in four countries (Greece, Cyprus, Romania and Portugal) to identify and assess present realities and challenges regarding teacher careers, professional development and well-being. It will also allow the project team to pinpoint to issues that are linked to SWPBS. The findings of the research and the conclusions to be drawn will allow partners to draw a catered action plan that will guide the national leadership teams in the implementation of ProW.

Literature Review Needs Assessment

Work Package 2: Experimental Protocol
The implementing partners will set up a comprehensive framework for implementing Positive Psychology and SWPBS methodologies and approaches in early childhood education. Moreover, they will form a team of external coaches in each country that will develop and deliver training and professional development for teachers.

Work Package 3: Field Trials
ProW will carry out field trials in 15 schools in each implementing country. The schools and their educators will be assigned in two experimental conditions: Experimental and Control. The teachers in the experimental group will be receiving training and ongoing coaching and monitoring for the implementation of the intervention during the course of the first year of the project. Consecutively, in the second year of the project, the Control group’s schools’ teachers and educators will also be trained and coached. The project team will be review and analyse the implementation data from the field trials in the schools to develop reports documenting the effects of the intervention.

Work Package 4: Digital Platform & eLearning
An online platform will be developed to connect external coaches with school teams as well as external coaches with colleagues across the four countries. The platform will also feature online modules for teacher professional development and will also be complemented by a mobile learning app that will provide teachers with just-in-time practical tips as well as learning resources to better manage their wellbeing and their students’ social skills development

Work Package 5: Policy Development Scalability
The project team will use a survey tool to identify and measure the scalability and sustainability needs and capacities related to policy and practice in each country. The findings of said surveys will then be utilized for the development of context-specific guidelines for policy and practice ProW scalability and sustainability.

Work Package 6: Teacher Wellbeing and Career Observatory
The Consortium will establish a Teacher Wellbeing and Career Observatory that will conduct annual review and surveys in the field and most importantly, design and implement initiatives and actions to support teachers in the field.
