Policy on child labour

Validation and Knowledge Sharing Workshop on Department of Education Policy on Child Labour

The USDOL-funded Country Level Engagement and Assistance to Reduce Child Labour (CLEAR) Project will the conduct a National Consultative and Knowledge Sharing Workshop on Education and Child Labour on 3 to 5 November 2015. The purpose of the activity is to discuss and validate a policy on addressing child labour within the education system that will be issued by the Department of Education.

The DepEd Policy on Child Labour will be anchored on a system of detecting and profiling in-school child labourers and referring them to appropriate services providers. To equip the around 75 participants with the lens to adequately enhance the policy there will also be a knowledge sharing session which will showcase successful models of child labour elimination through education interventions from the work of NGOs, government agencies and the public school system.
