To all our schools, families and learning destinations.
The current situation we find ourselves in is unprecedented and this has been a challenging year for us all. We have been looking at alternative ways to continue running CU successfully during this difficult time and have been working with National CU, to ensure that we can offer the service you all deserve going forward.
As you may be aware our CU Project Officer (Alix McGarvey-Leggett) has been on maternity leave and during this time the service has gone through some changes.
Norfolk Children’s University now sits within the Education Strategy & Infrastructure service within Norfolk County Council.
All colleagues have been working from home since the start of lockdown and will continue to do so for at least the next few months. Alix returned from maternity leave in July and during the past couple of months she has been looking at ways of working in order to better support our schools, families and learning destinations during these turbulent times.
We will be offering more online learning opportunities to ensure our learners can continue earning CU credits and working towards their awards.
Although some of our learning destinations are back up and running as normal, providing they are able to adhere to government guidelines and run activities in a socially distanced environment.
We are aiming to run our next lot of graduations virtually with hopes to run our first trial virtual graduation this year.
We appreciate all your support and patience during this time of great change.
