About this course

This course is all about the basics, it’s for people who are just starting out and want to learn the fundamentals or who know a bit about human rights and equalities and want to know more or are just curious about what a human rights and equalities first approach might be?

Join us to learn:

  • About human rights and equalities – what are they, and why do they matter?
  • What a human rights and equalities first approach is and why it is relevant to you and your organisation.
  • How we can start a conversation and talk constructively about human rights and equalities.

Our one-day training session will introduce you to THRE’s Human Rights and Equalities First Approach and provide practical steps to start or continue your human rights and equalities journey.

The course takes place online via Zoom and is for anyone working in Scotland’s third sector. It will run from 10 am – 3:00 pm with breaks at regular intervals, including a 45-minute lunch break.

We strive to make all of our training sessions accessible. Please let us know if you have any accessibility needs when you book your place.

About THRE

THRE (Third Sector Human Rights and Equalities) is a partnership of GCVS, EVOC and HTSI. It’s a nationwide project with funding from the Scottish Government Equality and Human Rights Fund to allow us to develop and deliver resources, training and networks to support third-sector organisations towards taking a human rights and equalities first approach to their organisational development and delivery. As such, course spaces will be prioritised for Scotland-based organisations.
