These ten files form a training pack for teaching about human rights and lobbying during the 2015 UK general election.

We've created it for Amnesty Trainers to use when engaging with Local Groups, Student Groups or external organisations, in a training or facilitation setting. Trainers may add or delete slides as they find appropriate and adapt the script to suit the style and length of your session. Also included are additional materials which can be used in selected activities.

Training objectives

1.    Provide an introduction to Amnesty’s general election strategy.
2.    Understand how to operate under The Lobbying Act.
3.    Build the skills and understanding needed to lobby effectively.
