This work package aims to develop various materials to be used throughout the needed trainings and workshops. It also includes school visits to create school clusters. Schools are selected using the following criteria: public schools, in the neighborhood, having a Quality Assurance unit, willing to participate, having a technological infrastructure. EU partners travel to Egypt to help in the training and material development.
The sub-activities included in the Development work package are:

EU partners travel to Egypt to coach and monitor the training and mentoring activities.

Neighbouring Schools are visited for monitoring purposes to ensure that the process of forming the PD school clusters is running as planned. In addition these visits inform the development of the materials. Progress reports from the 15 PD schools are delivered.
