The purpose of the current paper is to contribute to the overall effort (nationally and internationally) for raising the quality of the delivery of educational programs and redesigning ESD programs by evaluating the use of a "Rounder Sense of Purpose" (RSP) model, as a simple and solid model that supports and facilitates the development of ESD competence-based teacher education courses. The research took the form of a case study of an ESD teacher education program that aimed to scrutinize and transfer ESD competences to a group of educators in Cyprus. It explores (a) participants’ experience with ESD competences prior to the program, (b) their ideas and perceptions about how ESD competences support the ESD curriculum implementation, and (c) how RSP competences can help the development and delivery of a whole school ESD policy.
