Children's participation

Article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child introduced the right of children to have a say in issues affecting them. Although historic accounts demonstrate some children's willingness and ability to express an opinion pre-dating the UNCRC, a more visible emphasis on children's involvement and participation, particularly in the design and delivery of children's services, has been identified in its wake. In this free course, Children's participation, theory, practice guidelines and practitioner accounts are used to help the learner reflect on values and develop knowledge and skills for effective engagement and communication with groups of children in different contexts.
