The Centre for Child Rights and Business is collaborating with Quizrr, a leading provider of labour and human rights training, to together produce a digital training programme to prevent child labour in global supply chains.
The purpose of this programme is rooted in a commitment to ethical business practices and the eradication of child labour from global supply chains. Developed based on the comprehensive ILO Supplier Guidance on Child Labour Prevention, the programme is specifically tailored for upper/mid-level managers in supply chains. The curriculum, delivered through engaging visual storytelling, followed by knowledge-reinforcing quizzes in Quizrr’s digital training platform, addresses critical aspects such as definitions of children’s rights, child labour and hazardous work; robust prevention strategies that include key aspects such as age verification, best practices in recruitment (HR), and remediation covering different scenarios including children accompanying their parents to the work floor and young workers in hazardous conditions.
Initially focused on the Bangladesh and Türkiye markets, the collective objective of the training programme is to positively impact the lives of children and families by reinforcing children's rights and supplying companies with tools to mitigate the risk of child labour in their value chains.
“I am really happy that we are teaming up with Quizrr. This training won’t solve the child labour issue in our supply chain – but it has the potential to sow some much-needed seeds for positive change. For example, our training emphasises how we can avoid hazardous work for youth. Any factory that follows this guidance will concretely contribute towards the elimination of child labour. Working with Quizrr will undoubtedly allow us to extend that message to more companies and suppliers!” – Ines Kaempfer, CEO of The Centre for Child Rights and Business.
“This is a great next step for our collaboration with The Centre, and we are happy to be deepening our joint approach of combining the expertise and experience that The Centre brings with Quizrr’s tech platform designed for reach, allowing companies to mitigate the most salient risk in global supply chains.” – Sofie Nordström, co-founder and deputy CEO, Quizrr
