Dear Colleagues, HREA offers several courses for those interested to advance their knowledge and skills to advocate for children’s rights:

  • Rights of the Child – This rapid e-course gives an overview of the institutions and mechanisms that serve to protect, fulfil and promote the rights of children. This self-paced and self-directed course combines text with rich multimedia, including videos and podcasts and takes about three to five hours to complete.

  • Monitoring Children’s Rights (25 April-10 July 2012) – This specialised e-learning course is a basic introduction to measuring and monitoring the status of children, including basic health and welfare, education, civil rights and freedoms, and special protection measures.
