The research centre CARDET, CPI and INNOVADE co-organised an online informative meeting presentation entitled "The implementation of the School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support in Cyprus" which took place on Thursday, July 7, 2022, from 12:00-13:30. The event hosted 37 participants, all staff and partners of the Cyprus pedagogical Institute who have daily contact with schools in Cyprus.
The CPI is the responsible authority for the training and professional development of all teachers in Cyprus. The CPI staff also supports schools to implement their Yearly School Improvement Plan and Teachers Professional Learning Support Programme which relate to the Professional Learning Action Plan schools need to implement every year. For this reason, the informative presentation of the SPWBS project results was of high importance for the dissemination and exploitation in Cyprus.
The presentation referred to the SPWBS completion of implementation in 90 primary schools in Cyprus, Finland, Greece, and Romania, aiming to create integrated school systems to enhance the socio-emotional domain of children for the third consecutive school year (2019-2022). The primary objective of the event was to present the scientific approach adopted and the results of its implementation in 31 primary schools in Cyprus. Participants had the opportunity to get acquainted with the theoretical framework, the practical steps that the schools are asked to implement, as well as the tools that resulted from the implementation of the project. In this way, they were able to express interest to be trained in this framework and become part of the network of external trainers of the SWPBS approach in Cyprus.
