E-learning platform and open educational resources on child protection and development

The e-learning platform on Child Protection and Development is the result of a collaboration between organizations and youth leaders from Italy, Senegal, Kenya, India, Peru, Spain and Greece in the frame of the project Child Protection and Development: Youth Work Experiences across the World co-funded with the support of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, Key Action 2 Capacity building in the field of youth.

The platform is complemented by an e-learning course and a learning booklet covering a range of non-formal learning modules related to child protection and development. Both the e-learning course and the learning booklet are composed of six thematic and self-paced learning modules consisting of a series of samples of non-formal learning activities, educational tools, background texts, references and direct web-based links to useful sources of information, analysis of case studies on child protection and development that incorporate community practices and approaches from the organizations involved.

The e-learning platform aims is intended as an open learning resource for youth workers, educators, trainers, facilitators, young leaders, social workers, intercultural mediators, project managers and experts to be put into practice in their daily work with and for children. The platform could also be used in formal settings such as schools, colleges and universities addressing development challenges addressing children rights.
