Children's University!

I met my colleague and friend Ger Graus today at the Eccles Centre in York...

It was great to see Ger, who is Chief Executive of the Children's University. This national scheme is a fantastic initiative operating in around 60 locations across the country and providing a framework for validated and quality assured activities for 7 to 14 year olds. The real success of the Children's University is the added value these activities can give to some of our children and young people and the difference these things can make to the outcomes they achieve.
The  Children's University provides young people with Learning Passports which they use to capture their out of school hours learning journeys and learning activities at validated centres and schools. 

Organisations like museums, libraries, study support centres, playing for success centres and other attractions are involved with this fantastic initiative. If you want to find out more about the Children's University you can visit their website at where you can listen to the National Chancellor of the children's University Michael Morpurgo an English author, poet, playwright and librettist, best known for his work in children's literature.
