Welcome to the Birmingham Cohort of the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award.
Education and well-being of all children is at the heart of the award and most of the work you are already doing in schools aligns itself perfectly with the standards.
This course is an introduction the Award and to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
If your school has recently registered for the Award then you will find this course is particularly well suited to your needs. The aim of this course is to arm you with strategies to involve and inform all members of your school community and work quickly and effectively towards the first stage of the Award, Bronze: Rights Committed.
This is a really exciting initiative that is already having a significant impact on building resilience with children and young people in Birmingham. Education and well-being of all children is at the heart of the award and most of the work you are already doing in schools aligns itself perfectly with the standards. Overall, your school should have the opportunity to engage with three days of training provided by Birmingham City Council, representing a significant saving for your school.
