UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award

Unicef works with schools across the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive.

Birmingham is leading the way with the award and over 170 schools are now engaging with this ground breaking approach to safeguarding and promoting wellbeing. We are hoping to reach 200 by the end of 2017.

Training is organised by the Education Resilience team and is free to Birmingham schools, representing a significant saving in training costs.

Schools can access three days of training which will support them through the stages of the award with a network of peer support across the city.

Book training via Eventbrite
