"Starting to feel good for functioning well " is a project funded by the European Union through the National Agency for Community Projects in Education and Vocational Training (GRU-13-C-LP-319-B-RO).

The purpose of the project is the development of skills and abilities to promote wellbeing in the educational work for a target group consists of teachers who occupy leadership , human resource managers, trainers , teachers, psycho-pedagogues.

- creating the tools necessary to identify factors that influence positively or negatively the educational environment : questionnaires, interviews , focus groups;
- design strategies promoting awareness and the importance of establishing and maintaining educational wellbeing in crops as a first step towards stability and progress at school;
Each of the three partners selected a variable number of pilot schools deemed, necessary to implement the instruments working . We make known those results as a form of dissemination activities developed within the project and , especially , as an overview of the state of affairs in educational environments. Bucharest School Inspectorate has designed strategy to measure the level of satisfaction of teachers in the work environment , such as: application of questionnaires among teachers of primary and secondary school , vocational and general secondary school , organizing the focus groups in the same schools and interpreting the results.
A large number of interviewed correlated the wellbeing with internal factors (health, joy, love, seriousness) and also with external factors (comfortable atmosphere). The factors that influence the wellbeing are mostly external: the family, the working collective, the wellness, the environment, the entourage ,the harmony.
