Youth Rights Trainers are highly skilled young people with experience of the UK immigration or asylum systems, who design training courses and co-deliver our training programme.
Each youth rights trainer has been through an accreditation scheme, has been awarded a Gateway award in Peer Rights, and is a highly skilled member of staff.
There is a sense of urgency, to educate people on the rights of youths, to reach out a helping hand to young people and ensure that they are not alone. They have people like you and I looking out for them, people like us who care about their future and their stories. (Ray, Youth Rights Trainer)
To see our trainers in action, book one of our training courses. The youth rights trainers have also designed courses which are free to attend:
An introduction to the rights of children and young people in the immigration system (free)
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 chlidren in families as well as separated children.
Access to education for more migrant children (free)
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.
