RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOLS COORDINATOR

UNICEF Ireland’s Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) is an
innovative and creative programme that aims to embed the UN Convention

The vision of the Programme is that all children in Ireland learn in a
rights respecting school community where the CRC is fully embedded in
values and practice. We are looking for a Coordinator to lead the

the heart of a school’s practice to improve well-being and help all
children realise their potential. A rights-respecting school is a
community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised,
respected, protected and promoted.

As RRSA Coordinator, you will support existing RRSA schools to achieve
and maintain their Rights Respecting status and promote the award to
