UNICEF UK provides training, support and guidance to individual schools, clusters of schools and local authorities to implement the Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA).

Our experienced education officers deliver training courses, make school support visits and carry out assessments. They also work in partnership with local authorities (LAs) to develop and accredit schools working towards becoming rights-respecting.

As a registered charity we rely entirely on voluntary donations to fund our vital work for children and their rights. Therefore we charge for training, school support, assessments and local authority partnership work. Our RRSA programme does not make a profit - it simply aims to cover our running costs.

Support is also provided through the RRSA Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) website which makes guidance materials and curriculum resources available to schools and local authorities. The guidance has been developed by education officers and rights-respecting schools. Access to the VLE is open to all schools registered on the RRSA programme.
