Children’s Commissioner for Wales to co-host Vale event to mark Universal Children’s Day

13 November 2015

The Children’s Commissioner for Wales, Professor Sally Holland, will be co-hosting a training event designed to create ‘Super Ambassadors’ for young people in the Vale of Glamorgan as part of plans to mark Universal Children’s Day 2015.

Participants at the event, to be held on Friday 20 November, will be drawn Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Rights Ambassadors project. The Super Ambassadors scheme, to which all primary schools can sign-up, enables pupils to become the Commissioner’s ambassadors within their schools and tasks them with fulfilling three missions each term.

Ahead of the event Professor Sally Holland said: “I am delighted that my office will be co-hosting an event for all my Super Ambassadors in the Vale. I am excited to have been asked to open the event and will be present throughout the morning to meet and talk to children and teachers. I can’t wait to meet them.”

The Rights Ambassadors project came to the attention of the Children’s Commissioner following a very successful first year. The project enables young people aged 11-25 from across the Vale of Glamorgan to receive accredited training on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and to develop and deliver workshops for other children, young people and professionals across the county.
