Field trials

The HAND: Empowering Teachers programme will be tested by using a quasi-experimental design with control groups (before/after effects) in five consortium countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Sweden, Austria, Portugal), teachers (primary and lower secondary) being the direct target group. Additionally, we will also include principals and school counsellors. Students will also benefit indirectly via teacher empowerment.

As such, the HAND: Empowering Teachers project aims to contribute to the formation of a comprehensive EU teacher policy (by providing EU and country-specific recommendations), addressing contemporary structural problems of the teaching profession in an evidence-based long-term way.
