- Who are Enrich Education?
At Enrich Education we encourage to achieve through learning, to gain recognition for their achievements and to raise their aspirations to succeed in the future. We believe children should be involved in learning in its broadest sense, both inside and outside the classroom if they are to achieve their potential. That is why we offer a range of activities including the Children’s University, PE and after-school clubs, Quidditch and School Orienteering.
- What is the Children’s University?
Described by the Sunday Times as ‘The University of Fun’, The Children’s University encourages 5-14-year olds to try new experiences, develop new interests and acquire new skills. The children receive credits for participation and commitment which ultimately leads to them experiencing a full graduation ceremony at a local university.
Enrich Education delivers Children’s University across Knowsley, St Helens, Halton, Salford and Trafford. There are over 60 schools running the programme across these five areas of the North West. There are thousands of more schools participating across the United Kingdom.
For more information surrounding this, visit the Children’s University page.
- How can I support my child to complete the Children’s University?
There are numerous things to you can do to support your children achieving through the Children’s University programme. Encouraging them to participate and commit to attending any extra-curricular activities available at their school would be an ideal first step.
There is also a multitude of validated ‘Learning Activities’ which you can visit with your children (such as museums and local clubs) where your child can gain stamps in their Children’s University passport to learning – equating to learning credits.
If you would like your child to participate in Children’s University, but their school is not yet involved, please on our contact details to the relevant members of staff at your child’s school.
- What happens once my school signs up for The Children’s University?
When a school signs an annual Service Level Agreement (SLA) with Enrich Education, this effectively registers all of its pupils to have the chance to take part in the Children’s University for that year. The SLA includes all the necessary support and tools to launch, administer and promote the programme – as well as the school’s own graduation ceremony at the end of the year.
Participating pupils need to achieve 30 hrs of validated extra-curricular learning in order to receive the first National certificate – a Bronze Award. They can continue to strive for higher certifications throughout their learning journey.
