It was a great course and highlighted what I had forgotten.

The scenarios were really relevant to our role. I will be able to easily transfer my learning to the work I am doing with children and young people in similar situations.

It’s the most informative and useful training that I’ve completed.

I feel more confident with including law to support young people, the scenarios used were a great example of some of the challenges faced by advocates and the discussion in groups helped with a stronger approach.

Course overview:

This half-day course has been designed to refresh and consolidate learning from our introductory course for advocates, ‘What’s law got to do with it?’, and to give participants the opportunity to fine-tune the knowledge and skills that are needed to use the law as an advocacy tool.

Course aims:

As part of the course, participants will:

  • Revisit the children’s rights framework in England;
  • Explore context and setting-specific laws that are relevant to children and young people’s advocacy goals;
  • Apply learning to real-life advocacy scenarios;
  • Refine the practical skills needed to use the law as an advocacy tool;
  • Evaluate individual progress and identify any remaining learning needs.

Facilitated by Karolina Kozlowicz, Article 39’s Head of Advocacy Support.. With a background in law and human rights, Karolina has worked with and for children and young people for over 10 years.
