PRotoTYPe: Preventing School-Based Bullying by Creating Early Prevention Programme

Abstract of the Project

Tackling learning disadvantage, early school leaving and low proficiency in basic skills: Bullying has increasingly become a well-known problem in recent years.Although previous studies and prevention programs generally focus on peer and/or cyberbullying, bullying has many other forms. The type of bullying between students and school staff has not adequately been explored or given attention, but it also harms the school environment significantly. Therefore, this project focuses on bullying towards school staff by students and bullying towards students by school staff, which will be called ‘School-based bullying’ from hereinafter. In terms of students, the project PRotoTYPe fights with bullying and aims to create a safe school environment, supports students throughout their education. To this end, it aims to cover the first priority within the scope of the Erasmus+Programme Guide and create unique tools to cope with School Absenteeism and Early School Drop Outs.

Project Goals

  • Preventing school-based bullying, which is the reason for early school leaving,
  • To reduce the number of disciplinary offenses in schools by at least 10% by preventing bullying
  • To produce educational materials for teachers and students to prevent school-based bullying.
