Children's University: Passport to Learning

We are proud to announce that The British Music Experience is part of the Passport to Learning scheme as associated with The Children’s University.

The ‘Passport to Learning’ has been created for children aged 7 to 14 years (and 5 and 6 year olds with accompanied with grown-ups) to collect 'stamps' and hours of accredited learning. This contributes to the award of a certificate, encouraging them to access Children's University™ provision and a wide range of other worthwhile out-of-school-hours learning opportunities. The ‘Passport to Learning’ is an essential component / tool for participating schools when logging a child’s additional hours in the wider community environment.
