An innovative educational programme was developed during the two years of the project’s implementation that is based on the theoretical framework of positive psychology and character education. HOPEs aims at improving primary school teachers’ knowledge and skills by using innovative and learner-cantered educational approaches that focus on students’ character development and well-being. More specifically, a training package was developed for primary school students that entails the following: positive emotions, character strengths and values, positive purpose, positive coping and positive connections.

A piloting phase where teachers were trained on how to utilise the material took place in all participating countries.

Expected results include trained teachers to become more motivated to improve their teaching methods and to guide their students in issues related to self-awareness, psychological resilience, happiness and positivity. Strengthening teachers’ ability to positively interact and influence students’ behaviour and competences will result in more effective and meaningful education in schools.
