AlmadaForma Training Centre


Who are we?

The County Schools Training Centre of Almada - AlmadaForma was created on 4 July 2008 and joined the two existing training centers in Almada County: Training Centre of the Association of Almada West-Proformar Schools (1993-2008) and the Almada-Tejo Training Centre (1993-2008). The AlmadaForma Training Centre (2009-2014) inherited the educational and training heritage of valuable action of two pioneering centers of Almada municipality. Currently, AlmadaForma Training Centre, based in the Secondary School of Monte de Caparica - Caparica Schools Group, serves about 2,000 teachers and 500 non-teaching staff of 2 not grouped schools and 13 county school groups.

Our contribution to the project

Developing, monitoring and supervision of a pilot study in different schools, with teachers from different school years, where the three pillars of the project (practitioner inquiry; access to results of academic research and professional learning communities - PLC) will be applied, developed and reflected on using a process of triangulation.

We intend to contribute evidence-based results to the scientific community. These results will be based around the continued professional development of teachers and the learning outcomes of students.
