Introduction

There are lots of resources across the web about the UNCRC and it can be hard to know where to start.  

To point you in the right direction, we have collected audio, video, text and visual resources of various lengths, to help you find the right learning material to suit you and the time you have available to learn.

Throughout the project, we heard that it is really important that resources about the UNCRC are practical, bite size, flexible, in plain language, and focus on peer learning. 

  • Explore the Learning Library of over 400 curated resources to help you find the right resource to answer your current question about the UNCRC and a children’s human rights approach in Scotland 
  • Explore the resources created by the project team and the panels 
  • Explore examples of promising practice from the panels we worked with in form of case studies and scenarios
