Children’s University is an amazing project where you can get rewarded for having fun!
Collect stamps in your Passport to Learning for each hour of an activity that you do, and when you get 30 we will give you a bronze certificate! Collect 65 and we will give you a silver certificate. Get all the way up to 100 and we will give you a gold certificate, and not just that, but we will invite you and your family along to the University of Plymouth where you will graduate.
Don’t stop there though. You can collect awards and certificates right up to 1000 hours!
As well as certificates we also have CU Badges that you will receive with your certificates. Wear them to school and show off your achievements.
About the Children's University
The Children's University is a national initiative. Children can go to different learning lectures and activities outside of school hours through the programme. For every event they attend, they get a stamp in their passports to learning, which they save up to earn bronze, silver and gold certificates.
Children are presented with their qualifications in school and once they reach a gold level, they are invited to a 'graduation ceremony' held annually to celebrate their achievements.
