In the Jump @ School project, a long work phase has been used to build the Logic Model, starting from the collection of some good practices in preventing ESL.
The Logic Model has been experimented by JumpOs within the selected schools.
At the end of the experimentation, Massimo Peron of CIOFS FP Emilia Romagna, one of those responsible for preparing the Logic Model, met the JumpOs in order to identify the strengths of the model and the elements to be modified. This is how the Operational Model was born: from the revision of a concrete experimentation.
The Operational Model confirms some of the intuitions contained in the Logic Model: the importance of some tools like the Individual Development Plan Agreement and the grid for the design of workshops. It highlights the effectiveness of the role of JumpOs, who are out of school but work in school. It recommends using different intervention settings, both individual and group.
But the Operational Model also introduces some differences from the Logic Model. It is necessary, in order to achieve effective prevention, to work in the medium to long term and not only for a few months. Above all, it is essential to work closely with the teachers.
These are the guidelines for future experimentations.
