How It Works
Children aged 5-14 sign up to Children's University Scotland through their school.
When they sign up, children receive two tools to help them record their learning - a Passport to Learning, and an Aspire account. The Passport to Learning looks just like a normal passport. By adding a stamp or a sticker, children record the activities they take part in outside normal school hours. Children then log their credit on our fun online members portal - Aspire.
CU members could collect credits for taking part in a reading challenge, playing in a school sports team, learning to play an instrument or visiting an art gallery, castle, science centre or nature reserve. The opportunities are almost endless.
We reward learning through awards and certificates, which we present at Children’s University graduation events across Scotland. CU graduation events can happen in school, in a community venue or at a local college or university. Children wear a cap and gown, and celebrate their wider learning with their teachers, families and friends - just like a 'grown-up' graduation.
