Children’s University

By July 21, 2014Education & Training

Warrington Children’s University is co-ordinated by The Wolves Foundation.

Children’s University if a national initiative that provides 7-14 year olds with exciting and innovative learning opportunities and experiences outside of the normal school hours.  Raising young people’s aspirations is important to us and we aim to develop that learning as the catalyst to better places in life!

An important principle of the Children’s University is that participation is voluntary.  Every time a student takes part in one hour of voluntary learning, they gain one credit.  Young people can gain credits from participating in school led activities, Wolves Foundation activities or from learning at verified ‘Learning Destinations’.   Children are provided with a Passport to Learning for them to collect stamps as proof of their learning.

Children work towards a national framework and if they gain sufficient credits, are invited to graduate from Warrington Children’s University at a special ceremony held annually.

Exciting activities include Warrington Wolves Stadium Tours and community activities plus our very own Patron, Curtis Jobling delivering illustration and creative writing workshops here at the Stadium.

We are always looking to add to our list of Learning Destinations! If you feel your organisation provides high quality learning activities for young people, please register with us.
