Human Rights Resources Competition

Human rights resources competition

International Human Rights Day is coming up on 10th December – a good time to celebrate the liberties enjoyed by UK citizens and to contrast them with the oppression suffered by many around the world.
ACT has teamed up with Teachit Citizenship and we want to get involved by rewarding you for your teaching resources that you have made on the theme of human rights.

We’re teaming up with ACT to offer the winner:

The United Nations Matters

The United Nations Matters

Today is United Nations Day. Commemorated on 24 October each year, the day marks the entry into force of the UN Charter in 1945.

Amnesty CPD Teacher Training

Are you a Citizenship teacher with an interest in human rights, equality and justice? Apply for Amnesty International's CPD Programme and become an Amnesty Teacher.

Syria-legal weapons and illegal weapons

As the crisis in Syria continues, much the recent argument between those nations who are concerned about the fighting has been about the moral and legal use of certain weapons. These are complex matters yet of great interest to students. Go to the British Red Cross pages for some really good ideas about discussing these matters.

ACT Citizenship CPD - Module C Children's Rights (Primary)

The purpose of this training module is to find out about the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Rights Respecting School Award and how children’s learning about their rights is integral to citizenship education within a whole school context. This module can be downloaded here. CHILDREN'S RIGHTS
