Master students, well-being, positive thinking, formative programme,


The topic of this study is based on the idea that school should be understood as a system with significant impact on the children`s well-being. Consequently, Therefore, school must act so as to provide an optimal educational climate that allows students to achieve the appropriate academic performance, considering and responding to their emotional and social needs (Bronfenbrenner & Morris, 1998). We found out that primary school pupils face complex problems generated by the current socio-economic and cultural context that strongly influences family, the mass media quality, the community as an educative environment, and show real difficulty in identifying an appropriate response to develop their well-being. This aspect has motivated us to propose a training program for master students in the field of education sciences through which they would develop their investigative and educational intervention competences on the school and classroom climate in order to increase the pupils` well-being as a relevant factor in optimizing learning.
