Training for professionals

Scroll down to find out more about our training for professionals

As part of our training  and capacity building under General Comment 5 and Administrative measures, we provide a rang of training for professionals.

The aim of this is to develop training and capacity-building for all those working with children and involved in the implementation of children’s rights. This should emphasise the status of the child as a rights holder, increase knowledge and understanding of the Convention and to encourage active respect for all its provisions.

While the general understanding of children’s rights has improved over recent years, and there are pockets of good practice, there has not been any systematic training process for all those working across government and children’s services. To remedy this, NICCY has developed an online training modules on children’s rights which is available to officials and professionals through the NICS LiNKs training platform.
