Human rights education, trainings and awareness raising – Welsh Government assessment

Progress assessment

Limited progress

There have been legal or policy changes to improve human rights protections but very limited evidence of sustained improvements in the enjoyment of human rights on this issue

There have been a number of positive legislative and policy changes to increase education and awareness of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), including the Curriculum and Assessment (Wales) Act and training for Welsh Government officials on children’s rights. However, the new curriculum has not yet been implemented so it is too early to fully assess the impact of curriculum changes. While there has been particular progress in relation to children’s rights, a lack of understanding of human rights persists and there has been no progress in raising broader awareness of human rights.
