Essex CU Families  ( an annual membership scheme)  has been introduced in response to a growing interest from families whose children do not attend an Essex Children’s University Membership School but who would like to become a Children’s University Member.

Essex CU Families will also support the involvement of existing CU Learners where their school has decided to bring to a close its School Membership of Essex Children’s University.

Membership includes

·          Passport to Learning* – to be used by our CU Learners to log hours of participation at Learning Destinations across Essex and indeed across the Country.

·     E-Passport – to be used by our CU Learners to record, electronically, their hours of participation. 

·     Access to a range of fun learning activities at a range of National visitor attractions.

·     Discounted or free access to a range of quality assured Learning Activities.

·      Monthly eNewsletters which will offer information about new Learning Destinations, discounts, achievements and opportunities.

·   An annual gowned CU Graduation at The University of Essex where National certificates will be awarded.  CU Graduation Ceremonies are held on a Saturday and are combined with a day’s programme of CU Lectures.

·       Early-bird booking to CU Lectures and CU Workshops.

Cost: We are able to offer a discount for families with more than one child
