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.
In 2020 Amnesty International UK will launch a human rights education resource focused on women’s rights. We currently have resources on women’s rights that we are seeking either to update or replace: https://www.amnesty.org.uk/education-resources-womens-rights.
The primary objective of this project is to provide pupils with relevant understanding and knowledge of women’s rights issues and to foster attitudes of equality and respect for everyone. Pupils will also develop skills to enable them to take action to defend women’s rights. The pack will also support teachers and build their confidence when introducing women’s rights to their students.
The pack will include between 3-5 lesson plans which will use innovative ways to explore women’s rights. They can be stand-alone lessons linked to particular subjects or syllabi or used in planning themed or dropdown days across the school.
We are seeking to recruit one or more freelance consultants to research and draft this resource focused on women’s rights. We estimate that this work will take up to 5 days.
