Learning Destinations are places, clubs and organisations which provide high quality learning opportunities and activities

Children’s University Australasia & Africa (Indian Ocean) (CUA) members can ‘travel’ with their Passport to Learning to engage in learning activities and experiences with a ‘wow’ factor. There are two types of Learning Destinations; Public Learning Destinations and Restricted Learning Destinations. A Public Learning Destination is one that can be accessed by any passport holder or member of the public, such as a museum. Restricted Learning Destinations are for a predetermined CUA audience and are typically school based clubs. We are proud to offer CUA members an extensive range of unique and appealing Learning Destinations. All organisations seeking to become Learning Destinations must undertake our quality assurance process known as Planning for Learning to ensure consistency in the quality of learning activities.

Learning Destinations are encouraged to provide both physical and virtual activities for CUA members.  Partnering with CUA provides an opportunity to promote your activities to the CUA network both nationally and internationally.
