Quality Assurance for All?

Ensuring quality of youth work through intersectionality and human rights (Q&A)

logo transparent.png


The project is going to implement two major activities:

  • A research phase, including a state-of-the-art report on quality assurance in the European youth sector, considering non-formal learning activities addressing intersectionality, human rights, and common EU values.

  • A participatory phase, so that we co-construct a quality assurance model together with youth workers, trainers, and young people in general, followed by a capacity building activity to support the development of competences to use and test the quality assurance model.

Specifically, the project is structured in 4 Work Packages (WP)

WP1 - Project Management

  • To ensure the successful fulfilment of all contractual activities.

  • To define all technical details regarding the implementation of all project activities.

  • To ensure high quality of all project outputs and deliverable and to introduce a mechanism able to effectively identify & mitigate risks for the successful implementation of the project.

  • To reassure that the approved budget, set of activities and work plan will be respected during the implementation of the project.

WP2 - Research 

  • To identify the main tools and/or models used for quality assurance in the European youth sector, including MEAL frameworks. 

  • To ensure an in-depth understanding of the partner organisations’ needs regarding quality assurance, monitoring, and evaluation of non-formal learning activities by identifying key gaps, challenges, and potential opportunities.

WP3 - Development of the quality assurance model 

  • To design and implement a quality assurance model including relevant tools (e.g. monitoring, evaluation, and learning -MEAL - framework) tailored to non-formal education activities that promote an intersectional approach, human rights, and common EU values among youth workers, trainers, and young people in general.

  • To support the development of competences among young people, trainers, youth workers, and the youth work community of practice to promote an intersectional approach, human rights, and common EU values in quality assurance for non-formal education activities, using the quality assurance model as a capacity building resource.

WP4 - Dissemination and communication

  • To effectively disseminate project goals, activities and findings, promoting networking and wide impact creation.

  • To identify and engage stakeholders throughout the course of the project in order to ensure that the results of the project are applicable and appropriate to stakeholders.

  • To successfully transfer the results to appropriate decision-makers in order to achieve their sustainable promotion and support.

  • To raise awareness in the broader European area of the relevance of the issues.

  • To convince similar organisations outside of the project to adopt and/or apply the results, also after the project has ended.

Expected Results

  • The implementation of the different WPs will contribute to the achievement of the following expected results:

  • A quality assurance model developed from a participatory and democratic approach.

  • Accessible and relevant quality assurance methods (including a MEAL framework) for non-formal learning activities that focus on intersectionality, human rights, and common EU values.

  • Better ownership of the process of monitoring, evaluation, and learning of non-formal learning activities in the youth sector.
