Training & Support – Introducing children’s rights

The Scottish government wants Scotland to be the best place in the world for a child to grow up, with opportunities for all in Scotland to flourish.  An integral part of their vision is the recognition of, respect for and promotion of children’s human rights.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is the internationally mandated children’s rights framework that informs our strategies and programmes.

Part 1 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014  embeds UNCRC rights in Scottish legislation and places new children’s rights duties on Scottish Ministers and public authorities.

This online training course will help you gain an understanding of children’s rights, rights frameworks (e.g. UNCRC) and rights-based legislation (e.g. the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014).

You can access the training here: UNCRC

The membership form is available as a Word document. The form is very brief and won't take much time at all.
