15 Jun 2016

UNICEF Regional Office for Central East Europe and Commonwealth of Independent States (CEE/CIS) as part of its partnership with the Child Protection Hub for South East Europe is implementing 3 rounds of trainings in Slovenia  as part of its joint initiative “Developing capacities and providing support to frontline workers assisting refugees and migrant children in four countries in South Eastern Europe (Phase II)”

The first two rounds of training will be conducted between 27th to the 28th of June 2016, and cover basic issues of child protection in emergencies. The training will increase participants’ knowledge on topics such as impact of being a refugee, communication skills in culturally relevant and sensitive ways,  talking with children and families about difficult issues, and problem solving.

From 30th of June to 1st of July a two days training of trainers will be offered to  participants to enable them to roll out a basic training on protecting children in emergencies.

A total of 65 participants is expected  to be involved in all  training rounds, representing various public and non-public agencies. The training will provide  an opportunity to learn, reflect and share knowledge and experiences with an interactive and participatory  approach using adult learning methodologies.
