The Commission’s training seeks to increase learners’ knowledge and understanding of human rights and to empower individuals to exercise their own rights and respect the rights of others. This approach emphasises how human rights are achieved. Essentially, in our training, we convert the human rights principles and laws into effective practice.

 

Please note: The Commission’s fee-for-service training is not currently available for individuals.
