Information for Learning providers

 What is involved in becoming a CU validated Learning Destination?


Children’s University wants to ignite many sparks of inspiration and aspiration in children and would like as many places as possible to become CU Learning Destinations, in order to support our aim in raising ambition and providing access to innovative learning activities across the globe.

Children's University works closely with all kinds of learning providers and activity leaders to offer children the widest variety of opportunities. In order to offer a consistent quality of activities we undertake a quality assurance process to validate these opportunities to confirm they meet certain standards.

This validation does not require the completion of an excessive amount of paperwork. It simply involves learning providers completing an online form and putting time aside to talk to one of our Children's University managers about what is on offer for children and ensuring that our organisations are aligned in our commitment to children.

If you're a learning provider and want to validate your activities for children to become a Learning Destination, simply click 'Next' below. You'll be asked to do a quick eligibility check and then invited to submit information about your activity.

Once the validation procedure has been completed, children are eligible to collect hours of learning into their ‘Passports to Learning’.
