CU IconWhat are Learning Destinations?

A Learning Destination is a place children ‘travel’ to with their passports to participate in CUA activities. All Learning Destinations are quality assured by CU Charles Darwin representatives.

  • Public Learning Destinations can include places like museums, art galleries, zoos and local councils.
  • Restricted Learning Destinations are school-based clubs; for example, chess, sports, language and dance clubs.
  • Restricted Learning Destinations are only accessible to children enrolled at the participating school.

All Learning Destinations, both public and restricted, are validated by trained CU Charles Darwin representatives to certify that they provide high-quality learning opportunities with content that can be linked to areas of further study.

Learning Destinations are continuously developing new activities. The best way to access current information and events is referring to the CUA events calendar and the Northern Territory Learning Destination page.

CU IconWhat activities currently exist?

The Children University Australia website provides a comprehensive list of all Northern Territory Learning Destinations and event information.

Learning is dynamic, diverse and everywhere. Learning Destinations can be found across the state. Children’s University Charles Darwin staff are constantly looking to broaden the range of experiences available at Learning Destinations and working on setting up collaborations between Learning Destinations and connecting schools to service providers in the community.

CU IconHow to get involved

Do you already currently provide activities for 7-14-year-olds and would like to collaborate with larger networks and expand your community profile? CU Charles Darwin creates an opportunity to engage students and promote your exciting opportunities.

Validation is the first step in a club or organisation becoming part of CU Charles Darwin. Many existing schools and community-based activities, such as sports or language clubs, will find it easy to meet the criteria for validation and an important part of CU Charles Darwin is to support and recognise these already existing activities.

The CUA validation process assures the quality of the learning. All matters of Health and Safety, Public Liability and Maintaining a Childsafe Environment remain the responsibility of the Learning Destination. All Public Learning Destinations are expected to operate to their statutory requirements in these areas.

CU IconWhy become a Learning Destination?

Becoming a Learning Destination offers the opportunity to connect your passion to a young audience. Becoming a Learning Destination can be a powerful way to engage in the community and contribute to the success and achievement of young people.

The validation of activities across all Learning Destinations indicates the quality of the program or experience for students and families.
