The Chamber maintains that the “platform is an online and secure space” and accessible to “the whole educational community“, and the “training of educators and teachers” is already underway.

This measure “consists of two types of intervention, individualized and in a group, intended not only for students but also for the family itself,” reads the communiqué from the chamber.
“In the case of individualized intervention, students will have psychology accompaniment and the family will follow up with a social educator“, while in the “group intervention the students of the 1st cycle of basic education will have monthly classes of citizenship and families also have monthly thematic sessions with parents, “the press release said.
Both projects are part of a project + Trofa Project: Space for Learning, Collaboration, Sharing and Family Involvement, within the framework of the Pact for Development and Territorial Cohesion (PDCT) of the Metropolitan Area of Porto.
