How good is the learning?
Wherever you see our Learning Destination logo you can
be sure that the learning is good. With the support of Professor
John Mcbeath of Cambridge University, the CU Trust has developed a
unique and innovative framework for quality assuring all CU
learning. The process is developed through Planning for
Learning which sets out a rigourous process of self-evaluation
for all our learning providers.
The process is completed in partnership with an accredited
validator, usually from the local CU. Learning providers are
validated for a defined period and may add additional activities as
their programmes develop. It is important to note that the CU Trust
validates the learning offered by each provide. The providers
themselves retain complete responsibility for all matters relating
to public liability. Learning providers are designated as either
restricted Learning Destinations, if they are a school and
only accessed by the school's pupils, or public if they are
available to all.
Once the validation process has been completed and the outcomes
agreed, public learning destinations are published on the
Children's University Trust website. Children and parents can
then access a growing bank of public Learning Destinations
to visit after school, during the school holidays or at weekends.
Information on restricted Learning Destinations is only
available through the child's
