For professionals to effectively play their part in promoting, protecting and fulfilling children’s human rights, they need to have good knowledge and relevant skills to do so.
In support of the implementation of the UNCRC, Scottish Government have commissioned Children’s Parliament, Together, JRS knowhow and JustRight Scotland to create a UNCRC Skills and Knowledge Framework and Training Plan. The Framework will enable individuals in the workforce to better understand the knowledge and skills they need to fully deliver children’s rights. And using the Training Plan, organisations can support their staff to learn, develop and put these knowledge and skills into their everyday practice.
Alongside our partners, we are working with a panel of children and families to get this important framework and training plan ready for April 2024. More information is available from the Framework website: uncrc.scot/
