For Schools

Science museum experience for LCUMany of the activities already offered out of school hours can be ‘validated’ as Children’s University modules, as long as learning and skill development is taking place. This can be anything from a two hour workshop to a 10 weeks course.

As part of the Quality Assessment process, any club or activity to be included as a validated activity needs to be written up as a ‘module’ using our module planning document. This document includes a brief description of what the activity will offer and also lists what skills the students will develop.

This person will be responsible for collating information about the modules offered and, in the case of schools, sending in the participation data each term so that we can track the number of hours the students have accumulated (Public Learning Destinations do not need to do this, they just stamp the ‘passports’).

We will provide you with all the templates that you need.  Learning Destinations will be provided with stickers and posters whilst schools will be given bronze certificates to award in school.

Children and young people record their participation in validated activities, both at after school clubs or at Public Learning Destinations such as museums, in their Passports to Learning. They receive a stamp for each hour of activity in order to work towards the national certificates. Passports are usually available from participating schools but you can also order directly from us at a cost of £5
