About Amnesty

Amnesty International UK (AIUK) is a national section, or branch, of a global movement of over seven million supporters, members and activists. Collectively, our vision is of a world in which every person enjoys all of the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights instruments. Our mission is to undertake research and action focused on preventing and ending grave abuses of these rights. We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion.

The project

In 2020 we will launch a human rights education resource for use with 16-19-year olds. The primary objective of the pack is to provide pupils with understanding and knowledge of their own human rights and the values and attitudes that underpin them. It will help to foster attitudes of respect and an appreciation of the uniqueness of everyone. Pupils will also develop skills to enable them to take action to defend human rights. The pack will also support teachers and build their confidence when introducing human rights to their students.

The resource will include between 6-8 lesson plans which will use innovative ways to explore human rights. They can be stand-alone lessons linked to particular subjects or syllabi or used in planning themed or dropdown days. It is expected that one of the lessons will be focused on refugee rights to fit with our global challenge brief within the Welsh Baccalaureate. Other human rights themes will be agreed at the inception meeting.

The role

We are seeking to recruit one or more freelance consultants to research, draft and pilot this resource. We estimate that this work will take up to 10 days.
