The Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools team provides training, support and guidance to all schools that are involved in the Award. They also work in partnership with local authorities (LAs) to develop and accredit schools working towards becoming rights-respecting.

Our aim is to help you along your rights-respecting journey to ensure you are successful in putting child rights at the heart of your school for the benefit of all children and young people.

Training courses

We provide a number of regional training courses across the UK. These courses will help you learn about children’s rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and provide you with the guidance and tools you need to become rights-respecting.

All courses costs £140 per person per day and participants must book with in advance via our online booking system.

Support to schools

Unicef UK offers a range of support options to work jointly with school leaders to achieve the Rights Respecting Schools Award. This can be tailored to your school and will help you maintain progress from registering for the Award to achieving the Level 2.

Support can include Professional Advisors coming to your school to deliver training to school staff and/or to children and young people.

Local authority support

We often work in partnership with local authorities to develop and accredit schools working towards the Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA). If your local authority is interested in working jointly with us, please send us an email.
