“Socio-Economic Policies for Child Rights with Equity”
This online learning programme aims at enhancing the theoretical understanding of UNICEF staff, partners and the general public on public policy and development issues, to strengthen our ability to apply this knowledge in the design and implementation of policies and programmes, and in the building of effective partnerships to promote children’s rights with equity. The learning enhances professional competency by imparting a set of relevant techniques and argumentation, critical consideration of approaches and strategies, and different policy options to allow for meaningful development dialogue.
This is a non-guided e-learning programme consisting of eight modules. This training is free of charge and open to all UNICEF staff globally, and can be shared with partners, including other UN agencies, governments, civil society organizations, universities and research centers.
COURSE DURATION: It should take you 5-7 hours to complete this course.
REGISTRATION AT NO CHARGE: The course is offered free of charge to ensure maximum outreach – we only ask you to register. If you do not have an account on the Agora platform, you can rapidly create one from the login page.
CERTIFICATE: The final assessment can be taken after completion of all the e-learning modules. A course completion certificate is generated for learners reaching the minimum scores.

Education for the 21st Century
Education transforms lives and is at the heart of UNESCO’s mission to build peace, eradicate poverty and drive sustainable development.
UNESCO believes that education is a human right for all throughout life and that access must be matched by quality. The Organization is the only United Nations agency with a mandate to cover all aspects of education. It has been entrusted to lead the Global Education 2030 Agenda through Sustainable Development Goal 4. The roadmap to achieve this is the Education 2030 Framework for Action (FFA).
UNESCO provides global and regional leadership in education, strengthens education systems worldwide and responds to contemporary global challenges through education with gender equality an underlying principle.
Its work encompasses educational development from pre-school to higher education and beyond. Themes include global citizenship and sustainable development, human rights and gender equality, health and HIV and AIDS, as well as technical and vocational skills development.
