About the Methodology
KiVa’s Bullying Prevention and Response Programme offers a wide range of specific tools and materials that schools can use to effectively reduce bullying and create a bullying-free climate.
Objectives of the methodology
For the school year 2023/2024, we are recruiting new schools to register in KiVa Programme.

We have already worked with the Good Start methodology in more than 300 schools and so far we have trained over 800 teachers from all over the Czech Republic.
From Finland to the Czech Republic
The KiVa® programme – from the Finnish Kiusaamista Vastaan, “against bullying” – is a scientifically proven programme to prevent bullying in schools. It was developed by the University of Turku for the Finnish Ministry of Education and is now being adopted by schools across the developed world.
SCHOLA EMPIRICA has been granted a research licence by the Finnish partners until 2024, when the programme can be piloted in the Czech environment.
All materials have been translated by professional translators and locally adapted by experts in education and bullying. The research licence is currently being piloted, inspired by the implementation of the KiVa programme in different parts of the world, not only in Finland.
