What training do we provide?

The provision of training and information events is integral to the work of the Children’s Law Centre.  All training delivered by CLC is directly informed by legal, policy and legislative developments relevant to children and young people and is underpinned by the key principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, ratified by the UK Government in 1991:

    Article 2 - Non discrimination

    Article 3 - Best Interests of the Child

    Article 12 - Voice of the Child


CLC training aims to support all stakeholders in making children's rights a reality in this jurisdiction by:

  •     Raising awareness and understanding of children's rights
  •     Promoting the protection and mainstreaming of children's rights
