What is this programme about?
The aim of this module is to build the capacity of early years mentors and leaders to engage with and critique international and national early years policy and practice trends from a children's rights perspective, to consider a rights-based approach to the education and care of the young child, and to integrate and apply knowledge from across the programme.
On completion of this programme, students should be able to:
• Critically appraise the legal rights of children and their parents in national and international law;
• Critically assess the approach of the Irish courts and the legislature to children's rights and analyse how those rights are protected and implemented, in light of recent societal, technological and legal developments;
• Identify and analyse areas of the law which are in need of reform, articulate and discuss any proposals put forward for such reform and debate their merits and formulate and advocate alternate proposals;
• Demonstrate a critical understanding of both legal analyses and the research literature relating to children's rights in the early years, and a rights based approach to the education and care of the young child aged 0-6.
