Table 8 Examples of added activities to enhance BCT use

From: Randomised controlled feasibility study of a school-based multi-level intervention to increase physical activity and decrease sedentary behaviour among vocational school students

• Provide better rationale for BCT use both in sessions and in campaign materials in cafeterias

• Provide more concrete examples of goals & plans for students, e.g. cafeteria campaign showcasing examples of these key BCTs

• Make self-monitoring optional for some homework tasks: Instead of requesting students to self-monitor their PA daily after each session, for the optimised intervention, compulsory requests for daily monitoring over 7 days will be done only after sessions 1 and 5

• Increase time for discussion of how to obtain social support over the sessions

• Decrease program focus on website and instead focus BCT use on readily available student workbooks
