Leeds Trinity University > Membership for schools

Benefits of school membership

Research shows that engagement with the Children's Uni​versityTM has a measurable and positive impact by improving attendance, attitudes and attainment.

Leeds Children's UniversityTM can provide extensive support for your school, including: 
  • validation of the school as a Learning Destination
  • validation of specific activities and clubs
  • validating school activities and clubs to become a Learning Destination
  • training for staff
  • undergraduate student volunteers to help with school-based events
  • marketing support
  • Super Saturday learning events at Leeds Trinity
  • passports, stamps and certificates
  • loan of caps and gowns
  • invitations to special Children's UniversityTM events

Expectations of school members

The benefits of membership far outweigh the expectations. Schools are required to:
  • identify a member of staff to engage in training and be responsible for Children's UniversityTM activities in the school.
  • complete administrative duties
  • promote the school's involvement with Leeds Children's UniversityTM
  • organise in-school award ceremonies
  • work with undergraduate student volunteers when they are in school
  • engage with Leeds Children's UniversityTM events at Leeds Trinity, including the annual graduation ceremony
