Current courses being offered through our training programme:

The rights and entitlements of young refugees and migrants

Our comprehensive, one-day training course covers law, policy and processes affecting migrant and asylum-seeking children and young people, focusing on unaccompanied children who are looked after and care leavers. Participants gain an understanding of these children’s particular needs and vulnerabilities, gaining a practical understanding of how to support them across different areas: the asylum and immigration system, trafficking, age assessment, and care and support including transition at 18 and 21. This is an all-day training session.

Access to education for more migrant children

This free training session is designed to give an overview of legal entitlements and issues surrounding access to education for children and young people who are within the immigration or asylum systems. Education at all levels will be covered: compulsory education (primary and secondary school), ESOL, college and university.

This course was developed by CCLC’s Youth Rights Trainers, accredited young people with experience of the UK immigration system, and will be co-delivered by them. This is an afternoon training session.

Supporting EU children in care

This half-day training course aims to give an introduction to the relevant EU legislation relating to EEA national children in the care system in the UK. EU law is notoriously complex, but this course is aimed at non-legal professionals and will focus on practical steps that may be taken to resolve uncertainty for these looked-after children and young people. This is an afternoon training session.

An introduction to the rights of children and young people in the immigration system

An introduction to the rights of children and young people in the immigration system aims to give an overview of children’s rights to non-legal professionals who work with children and young people. The course will cover the basics of asylum, immigration and nationality law, finding a lawyer and legal aid. It will look at the rights of children in families as well as separated children.

This course was developed by CCLC’s Youth Rights Trainers, accredited young people with experience of the UK immigration system, and will be co-delivered by them. This is an afternoon training session.

Access to healthcare for migrant young people and families

Co-delivered with Doctors of the World, this half-day training course aims to help medical practitioners and those working with migrant children, young people and families to understand the impact that immigration status can have on access to healthcare in England. This course offers both an overview of the legal framework in which medical practitioners are expected to operate and practical guidance on how to help people to exercise their rights. This is an afternoon training session.

Working with undocumented and NRPF families

Co-delivered with Project 17, this one-day training course covers law and policy on the rights of children in families with no recourse to public funds, including undocumented migrant families and families whose immigration status prohibits access to mainstream welfare and housing systems. It looks at how these families’ needs can be addressed, covering both resolving immigration issues and accessing accommodation and support. This is an all-day training session.

Registration of children as British citizens

Co-delivered with the Project for the Registration of Children as British Citizens (PRCBC), this free training session provides an introduction for non-legal professionals to registering children as British citizens, including identifying children who might be eligible, how the process works, and where to go for further advice and assistance. This is a late afternoon seminar.

Supporting child victims of trafficking

This one-day training course equips non-legal professionals with an understanding of the problem of child trafficking in the UK, how to identify potential victims of child trafficking in practice, the legal framework including the National Referral Mechanism and the relationship between trafficking and the asylum process and the criminal justice system, and providing effective support and protection. This is an all-day training session.
