About the webinar:

This webinar will present the results of the two year EU co-funded project “Training Professionals Working with Children in Care” (2015-2016), which was implemented in eight European Countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, France, Hungary, Italy, Latvia and Romania. The training handbook developed during the project, entitled “Realising Children’s Rights” builds on the four principles of the UNCRC while embedding them in the daily reality of alternative care professionals. A total of 881 alternative care professionals were trained on how to apply a child rights based approach to their daily work. Evaluations undertaken on the impact of the training highlighted that developing the capacity of alternative care professionals to implement a child rights based approach to their work is not only rewarding for the child in their care, but also the professional. The training enables participants to see things from the child’s perspective in order to better understand their needs. In order to ensure maximum sustainable impact on the issue of training professionals to apply a child rights-based approach when working with children and young people in care, young people with care experience were consulted on various activities and topics related to the project’s objectives. The webinar is primarily aimed at care professionals working with children in care.

Continued efforts are urgently needed to ensure that care professionals working with children in care receive training to embed a child rights-based approach in their daily practice.
