M9 - Validation of sets of materials to be used in career orientation in order to determine best suited instruments that will be made available to all teachers interested by carrying out a second round of testing and comparing results;

 

M10 - Creation of instructions for the application of the established set of questionnaires and materials;

 

M11-M12 - Revisiting statistics, individual questionnaire results, minutes of student-parent-teacher-counselor meetings in order to determine validity, assess progress with project activities, evaluate impact and decide further course of action;

 

M13 - Drawing conclusions at participant level project teams and preparation of reports for transnational mobility no.3 which will involve both teachers and students attending it in final establishment of the set of materials to be publicized as second product/ outcome of the project;

 

M14 - Application of the set of career orientation materials to groups of students (both similar and different) and identification of potential areas of risk, flaws in conception or design, cultural differences that may impel implementation, other issues;

 

M15 - Holding meetings with students and parents to uphold findings and identify gaps to be filled; referring students to on-line resources that will help them fill in gaps;

 

M16 - Validation of set of materials and on-line resource list to be made public, coupled with instructions in a second experience students will face during transnational mobility no.4 while being under close observation by participating teachers and professionals; changes will be made to the final product according to findings;

 

M17 - Preparation of materials for publication, translation of materials in the 2 international languages as well as in the native language of each participating country; publication and up-load of materials on the project website;
