Improving Migrant Children's Academic Performance

About the project


The Improving Migrant Children’s Academic Performance, or IMCAP, project aims to bridge the gap between immigrant parents of school age children and their teachers. As per an OECD study conducted in 2015, academic underperformance is common to most students with an immigrant background, but particularly first-generation immigrant students.

Students with an immigrant background face multiple sources of disadvantage that affect their academic performance and their general well-being. IMCAP thus focuses on improving the academic performance of an immigrant student. It involves 4 Partners in 4 European Countries who will bring their expertise together to create a platform to tackle the education gap and mismatches by strengthening the profiles of educators and teaching professionals.
