Children's University

The Children’s University (CU) is an exciting national initiative which encourages children to engage with learning opportunities of their choice and celebrates their commitment. CU offers schools and organisations an inspiring way to:


  • Increase pupils’ motivation to learn

  • raise aspirations

  • be part of a prestigious national initiative

  • contribute to the five Every Child Matters outcomes


Each activity is rewarded with a Sheffield CU certificate stating the credits gained and over time the credits accumulate to earn national award certificates and medals which are presented at a public ceremony.


The national awards are:


(30 hours) Silver (65 hours) Gold (100 hours).


Participation in activities is recorded as 1 credit for each hour of learning activity.
