  • To equip teachers with tools to enhance their capability to support students, promoting their mental health/emotional intelligence development;
  • To enable teachers to use creative and innovative methodologies as symbol work, storytelling, folk tales and other non-formal education approaches when working with disadvantaged students;
  • Support schools to tackle early school leaving (ESL) and disadvantage and to offer quality education, enabling success for all students.

Results

  • KITE Fighter toolkit for teachers;
  • Teacher training curriculum and 30-hours teacher training course;
  • Multilingual website including educational materials to be downloaded by teachers; links to other accessible materials and links to a Facebook group of KITE Fighters

Activities

  • Development of “Kite-fighter toolkit”: this is a collection of different tools, games and exercises, which teachers can use. It will include storytelling, symbol work and folk tales exercises;
  • Curriculum and implementation design for teacher training: development of curriculum and trainer’s guide for a teacher training. This training will empower teachers to use the Kite-fighter toolkit techniques as well as develop new professional and socio-emotional skills;
