Offer: SIDA’s Training on Child Rights, Classroom and School Management - Closing date for applications April 27, 2014

SIDA (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) is working with Lund University to develop the Child Rights, Classroom, and School Management program and is accepting applications from school administrators, educational advisers working to develop methods and manage at both the classroom and school levels across a number of schools (e.g., school system or school cluster); trainers and officers working at the district, province, intermediate level; teachers, school administrators, and staff working centrally and with a ministry of education at the national level; and NGO staff who work with education and human rights.
Using a child rights-based framework, this program provides participants with change processes that support the implementation of the Child Rights Convention in both policy and practice.

Through this program participants will learn about laws, regulations, and policies related to child rights, classroom, and school management; important elements of children’s right to education; the role of the school and education in society; how to use ICT effectively to meet these goals; key leadership and organizational structures and models; how education is used in sustainable development; as well as handling challenging situations (e.g., bullying, abuse, etc.).
