How does it work?

Every child that becomes a member of Leeds Children's UniversityTM receives their own Passport to Learning which they can use to collect stamps when they take part in activities in Learning Destinations. Certificates are awarded when a child reaches targets:​
  • Bronze Award Certificate: 30 hours of Childre​n's UniversityTM Learning Activities
  • Silver Award Certificate: 65 hours of Children's UniversityTM Learning Activities
  • Gold Award Certificate: 100 hours of Children's UniversityTM Learning Activities​
Certificates are normally presented at Awards events in schools. These are fantastic occasions for children, parents, carers and school staff. The pinnacle is our annual graduation ceremony held at Leeds Trinity when the children get to wear gowns and mortar boards.

Learning Destinations

Leeds ​Trinity University and partner schools are all official Learning Destinations. In addition, Leeds Children​'s University has validated 20 local organisat​ions, ranging from museums and galleries to dance and drama groups, to become public Learning Destinations where children can take part in high-quality learning activities. More details will follow shortly.​​


Leeds Children's UniversityTM​ works with seven schools and is in discussion with several more that have expressed an interest in joining. We are actively recruiting new schools to join our extended pilot scheme in the autumn term and welcome enquiries from schools wanting to find out more. ​​
