The TOY for Quality Programme Guidelines provide information for practitioners working with intergenerational learning initiatives who wish to assess and improve the quality of intergenerational learning services and programmes.
The purpose of the TOY for Quality Programme is threefold:
1. to support improvements in the quality of existing intergenerational initiatives and services
2. to provide organisations with a method to enhance planning in the field of intergenerational learning
3. to raise awareness at the local and national level about intergenerational learning as an area of professional and social action.
We provide technical support and advice to embed Intergenerational Learning involving young children and older people in their social and educational policies, training and activities.
This tool is for use by practitioners and organisations engaged in any stage of planning or implementation of Intergenerational Learning initiatives. This could include service providers in ECEC, social care, and community work, as well as local authorities offering Intergenerational Learning programmes and initiatives. All are welcome to be part of the TOY for Quality Programme.
