Kent Music is a Learning Destination for Kent Children’s University

This means that were are authorised to issue Learning Credits in participating children’s Passports to Learning.

The Children’s University™ (CU) aims to promote exciting learning opportunities and experiences outside normal school hours for children aged 7 to 14 (and 5 and 6 year olds with their families).  At the heart of its work is the ambition to raise aspirations, boost achievement and foster a love of learning, so that young people can make the most of their abilities and interests.

The Children’s University (CU) is able to recognise and reward children for all the additional learning they participate in voluntarily outside normal school hours. Once registered through a school or direct through the local CU, children can earn Learning Credits in a variety of ways including participating in activities held at “Learning Destinations.” Children are provided with a Passport to Learning for them to collect Credits as evidence of their learning.

Once children achieve a fixed number of Learning Credits, they will have the opportunity to have their successes celebrated at a very special Graduation Ceremony at either Canterbury Christ Church University, The University of Greenwich (Medway Campus) or The University of Kent.

Learning Destinations are places and organisations to which children can ‘travel’ with their Passport To Learning.  They provide high quality learning activities and experiences with a ‘wow’ factor and have passed the Children’s University’s™ own quality assurance process (Planning for Learning).  A Learning Destination can range from a museum to a farm or from an airport to a school.

There are Learning Destinations across the country. You can find out more about them by visiting www.kentchildrensuniversity.co.uk

We are proud of this partnership as the validation process shows that our methods for inspiring and education children and young people meets with the Quality Assurance process of National Children’s University™ Trust.

Children can earn Learning Credits for taking part in any of the following activities:

Staff at our activities will be happy to stamp children’s Passports to Learning.
