Learning Destinations beyond Sheffield

There are thousands of Learning Destinations across the UK, that have been validated by the CU Trust and by other Children’s Universities.  You can earn CU credits in your Passport to Learning by taking part in their structured activities too.  You can download the free 'CU e-Passport' App on your phone or tablet, or visit the CU Trust website to find out more.

To claim CU credits from Learning Destinations beyond Sheffield, you must download, complete and return a Passport Activity Diary Sheet to tell us what your child has learned. Please ensure your child gets a stamp in their Passport to Learning too.

Become a Learning Destination

If your organisation is based in Sheffield and delivers structured learning activities beyond the normal school day, we’d love to hear from you.  There is no cost for organisations to becoming a Learning Destination, and there are lots of benefits including many free promotional opportunities.  The only thing we ask Learning Destinations to do is to sign their members’ Passports to Learning, and to return a CU register of these children at least three times per year.

If you would like to become a Learning Destination please download, complete and return the registration form and we will get in touch.

Nominate an activity provider to become a Learning Destination

If your child attends an activity that is not already a Learning Destination, then please tell them about Sheffield CU and contact us to give us their information.  We’d be more than happy to invite them to join Sheffield CU and become a validated Learning Destination. Your child, and others, would then be eligible to earn CU credits in their Passport to Learning.
