Bespoke Children’s Rights CPD sessions for schools:

Our Professor of Children’s Rights (Carol Robinson) can provide Children’s Rights sessions to your school staff/groups.

The focus of the sessions would be on  What are children’s rights and what implications do these have for practice in early years and school settings?

The sessions would include looking at children’s rights as outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) (UN, 1989) and at the core principles underpinning the articles within the UNCRC. The aim would be to provoke discussion around factors to consider when implementing these principles in practice and for participants to gain a critical understanding of considerations and dilemmas relating to implementing children’s rights in practice.

As part of this work, there would also be a focus on Educating children about their rights and what this mean in the context of early year and school settings. This will include introducing participants to the key characteristics of human rights as outlined in the United Nations World Programme for Human Rights Education (UN, 2006) and outlining how everyday practices in early year and school settings contribute to children and young people’s human rights education. A further aim of the sessions would be to increase awareness of factors to consider when developing practices to educate children and young people about human rights.
