A training in the system-based audit of children’s care facilities for care professionals takes place in Zagreb

The first part of AudTrain, the training in the system-based audit, a method to monitor and assess the quality of children’s rights implementation in out-of-home care, was recently completed in Zagreb.

 AudTrain took place in the Zagreb hotel “Palace” in the period between April 19 and April 22. Participating were 23 professionals from different sectors within the care system – Ministry of Social Policy and Youth, Office of the Ombudswoman for Children, Social Welfare Centre, children’s homes and Association SOS Children's Village Croatia. 

This was the first part of the training, focused on the application of the system-based audit, a method used to monitor and assess whether the quality of professional work in out-of-home care complies with the children’s rights standards.

The next step will be to put everything that the participants learned during training into practice. Then, in November, all participants and trainers will gather at a joint meeting to review their experiences in applying the method. Several of the participants will continue training to become trainers themselves. This part of the training is scheduled to take place next year. The project will also conclude next year, at a closing conference that will be attended by the representatives of all countries involved.

The AudTrain II project, which was launched in autumn 2015, is designed to build the capacity and enhance the skills of professionals charged with the responsibility of auditing and monitoring the situation of children in alternative care. At the same time, AudTrain method aims to strengthen children’s rights, such as the right to express their opinion freely, right to privacy and right to protection and supported development during their placement in institutional care.
