The Train the Trainers meeting for the HOPEs Erasmus+ project, which centres around the development of a curriculum geared towards the promotion for happiness, optimism and wellbeing of children within the school environment, was held in the Cyprus Pedagogical Institute (CPI) in Nicosia, Cyprus between Monday, September 18th & Friday, September 22nd.
This meeting provided the opportunity for a representative from each partner within the consortium (Cyprus Pedagogical Institute, Institute of Development from Cyprus, GrantXpert Consulting Ltd. of Cyprus, ICEP Europe of Ireland, Panteion University Greece, Malta University and ISPA of Portugal) to present the materials developed by their organisation to the HOPEs team. The training period was hub of productive discussion and fun amongst the partners, and resulted in the provision of valuable feedback for the refinement and revision of the project materials.
Following the Train the Trainers week, the 3rd Transnational Meeting for the project was also hosted in the CPI on Saturday, September 23rd. The meeting was attended by 10 participants from the seven participating project partners and included discussion of the progress made across the duration of the Train the Trainers period, as well as details of the piloting methodology & dissemination and financial management activities to be completed moving forward.
