What is a learning destination?
A Learning Destination is a school or
organisation that offer validated learning
opportunities for children out side normal school hours i.e. after
school, they can be in the form of a club or learning module.
Why validate after school
National Children’s University® validation
provides you with the confidence that what your child is doing is
of a good standard and is fun
How does it work?
Throughout the year you will receive
information regarding after school clubs that your child may
attend. Children will collect credits for each hour they spend
attending after school clubs, the credits are collected in a
‘Passport to Learning’ which is available from school. Children
will receive a Children’s University ‘National Award’ once they
have reached Bronze (30 hours) Silver (65 hours) and Gold (100
hours). To receive their National Awards the children and you are
invited to a Graduation Ceremony at Doncaster
How much do the passports
Why does my child’s school want to
An increasing amount of evidence supports the
theory that children who volunteer to learn out side the classroom
develop a more positive attitude to learning and achieve greater
academic success. Your child’s school want to give your child every
opportunity to succeed as we are sure you do.
