Training in Human Rights Education

The COMPASS Training Courses in Human Rights Education are strategic national or regional activities for the development of competences of key multipliers for human rights education with young people.
The training courses can be organised at the initiative of national youth organisations or institutions interested in advancing the provisions and quality of human rights education and implementing the Council of Europe Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education. The focus of 2021 supported initiatives will be on increasing the capacity of young people to advocate and act for Human Rights.

 

Eligible applicants

  • non-governmental youth organisations and/or other non-governmental organisations;
  • governmental organisations focused on human rights, youth and/or education;
  • institutions involved in human rights education;
  • national networks of human rights activists and/or human rights educators.

Partnerships between different types of organisations are encouraged. Project partners may include local or national organisations or institutions interested in introducing, and developing the provisions and quality of human rights education.

 

Eligible national/regional training courses must
– aim at developing the competences (knowledge, skills, attitudes and values) of key multipliers in human rights education with young people such as youth leaders, trainers, youth workers, teachers and teacher trainers;
– foresee a programme and methodology based on the approaches outlined in Compass (an introduction to Compass and its approaches; experience in using the manual and how to adapt it to the participants’ contexts is considered essential);

– foresee a follow-up of the course by the participants, including for example measures to support national networks of organisations and trainers/multipliers involved in human rights education with young people;
