Between 2014-2016, Coram International will design, develop and pilot training of professionals across 10 EU member states from justice, residential care and detention centre settings on child rights and child-friendly communication skills. We are coordinating a network of 11 in-country partners and the project will result in the production of training modules and resources which can be replicated widely across the EU. During the two years, training modules has been delivered by key experts to 920 professionals across the 10 countries (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Poland, Slovakia and the United Kingdom). The piloted, evaluated and refined training will be made available through a web platform providing e-learning tools, certification and a guide for professionals on how to integrate the training into existing systems.
