We are a Learning Destination

1 Feb 2012

The Climbing Works is now registered as a Learning Destination with The Children's University. This means all children who come to The Works can gain points for their Learning Passports.

What is a learning Passport?

The Learning Passport is a nationally recognised award scheme that encourages children and young people to take part in learning activities out of normal school hours.  Research by the University of Cambridge indicates that keeping a record and celebrating participation in these activities through the Children’s University has a big impact on success at school.

There are lots of fun and exciting activities taking place outside of normal school hours in different places across Sheffield where children and young people can collect learning credits. These credits will be added to the ones children collect in school to earn Children’s University Awards. To collect these credits, they need a Passport to Learning.


How can your child get a Learning Passport?

Great news!  During the month of February 2012 only, all Sheffield children and young people can get a Children's University Passport to Learning for Free (normally £2 each) by going along to a Learning Destination and taking part in an activity.  Don't miss out - get your Free passport now from Sheffield libraries and start collecting your learning credits at The Climbing Works
