Table 2 Teachers’ preparedness and delivery of Operation Smoke Storm

From: A qualitative evaluation of a novel intervention using insight into tobacco industry tactics to prevent the uptake of smoking in school-aged children

a) I felt very good about it…everything was in place, that was brilliant. (School 2, Teacher 2)
b) The initial session [training session], yeah. I think that was definitely useful in terms of setting it up. It would have been quite difficult in my opinion; otherwise if we didn’t know the concept and the ideas behind it, I think that helped in terms of delivering it. (School 1, Teacher 5)
c) Some of the discussions we cut down quite a lot … it would have been lovely to have had more time. (School 1, Teacher 4)
d) There needs to be a bit more of, a teacher can override what is happening … so that it can suit the class. (School 1, Teacher 7)
e) The main thing would be a back button, without a shadow of a doubt. (School 2, Teacher 3)
f) I felt like I had to do a bit of research on my own, which wasn’t ideal, but if we had an information pack or something that said to us these are the kinds of things you’re going to come across. (School 1, Teacher 2)
