Placement of a mobile school
A new mobile school: what and how?
At the start of a new partnership, Mobile School NPO sends a mobile school and 300 educational games. Two members of Mobile School accompany the shipment and are responsible for training the street workers who will use the school.
The Mobile School team remains on site for 4 weeks to monitor the start-up. During the first two weeks, the street workers are immersed in an intensieve opleidingstraject. During the last two weeks, the street workers are supervised before, during and after their initial uses of the mobile school on the street.
