Children’s University Scotland brings together families, schools, learning providers, government and others to better support children’s learning and wellbeing. Since 2013, we have supported over 10,000 children across Scotland to take part in our Children’s University awards programme, helping them to overcome barriers to learning and to further their talents and interests.
