Doncaster College is widening opportunity for local families to become involved in the Doncaster Children’s University by launching an e-passport.
The e-passport is an on line facility for children to log any learning that they are involved in outside school, as long as the club or attraction is registered with Doncaster Children’s University as a Learning Destination.
Linda Metcalfe, Manager of the Doncaster Children’s University, said,
‘If your favourite club or attraction is not registered with us then we can arrange registration free of charge. The Children’s University pack costs £10 per year and includes everything that is needed to participate and gain credits.
We are very excited to be able to launch the e-passport to families in Doncaster who would like to be involved with the Children’s University. Until now children and families have only been able to take part in Children’s University if their school is involved, this new initiative will open doors for more families to join in.’
The Children’s University is a unique initiative that rewards children between 5yrs and 14yrs for learning outside the classroom. National certificates are awarded to children who visit or attend registered Learning Destinations such as sports clubs, museums, and libraries.
Linda continued, ‘If you run an after school club that can demonstrate learning outcomes for children and would like to become a Children’s University Learning Destination please contact the office today!
If you would like a list of Learning Destinations in Doncaster please e-mail the Children’s University office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01302 553.
And for all other national Learning Destinations visit the web site at www.childrensuniversity.co.uk.’
