Kent Children’s University

What is Kent Children’s Universitytm?

Kent Children’s Universitytm (KCU) is part of an international charity that provides 5-11 year olds with access to exciting and innovative CU Learning Activities and experiences outside the normal school day.  They reward children’s participation in voluntary learning activities that will develop their skills and raise aspirations for the future.

How does CU work?

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 “Public 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.
