The aim of the current study was to evaluate the training provided by the project “Early Change: Promoting the professional development of early educators.”* The training was conducted in six European countries between October 2012 and January 2013, and the participants were 122 early educators from six different countries. The aim of the training was to help the participants develop basic research skills by teaching them how to implement an Environment Rating Scale, the ECERS-‐R. The evaluation design was based on the use of mixed methods as both qualitative and quantitative data were collected. The results supported the successful provision of the training towards the improvement of the participants' research skills and the enrichment of their knowledge. Implications for the educational field practice are also discussed.
