How to use this Learning and assessment resource to improve practice?
Aims of professional learning:
- To raise practitioner awareness and understanding of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
- To link rights-based practice to the Scottish legislation and policy context
- To enable the support of rights-based practice across CLD and other organisations.
- To ensure we fully take the UNCRC into account in all our actions.
We recommend that people participate in a Train the Trainer session before delivering the full three hour professional learning but the introductory session and further resources can be used flexibly to support local discussions and staff teams.
