The Quality Active Ageing project aims will be achieved over a 30 month period through the seven partners each hosting a short-term joint staff training event, developing collaborative networks/ approaches and the creation of a Good Practice Guide on How Learning Contributes to Active Ageing.

As an answer to the increasing number of early school leavers, many countries in the EU have developed Second Chance education programs in order to reintegrate children and youths in schools so that they can obtain minimum qualifications. Children enrolled in Second Chance programs are mostly underqualified early-school leavers, who have difficult access to employment and often lack basic social skills to adequately integrate into the society, thus making them more vulnerable and exposed to abuse, exploitation and mistreatment.

Many of these children and youths have migrant background (children on the move) which makes them especially vulnerable. Therefore there is an immediate need to develop inclusion programs and adequate teaching methodologies to encourage migrant children to stay enrolled in education programs and lower their marginalisation.

QAA aims are to enhance the provision and quality of learning opportunities for seniors through like minded partners coming together to showcase their current provision, provide a forum for new ideas, identify and promote good practice. It is important, increased longevity is coupled with quality of life through active ageing and steps are taken to ensure through healthy living that older citizens remain independent as long as possible and contribute to society. Remaining active can reduce the likelihood of dementia (which is an increasing concern across Europe) and other health conditions.
