Around 1,000 school children will be making special visits to venues across the county to attend their graduations from the Norfolk Children's University this summer.
Every graduate will don a mortar board and gown to celebrate their achievements through the scheme, which celebrates and encourages learning outside of the school day.
This summer, for the first time, the Theatre Royal in Norwich and Green Britain Centre in Swaffham will host events.
All children attending a graduation will have completed 30 hours of voluntary learning outside the school day. However, this summer eight children will collect a Fellowship Award to reward them for completing 1000 hours of learning outside of the classroom.
The scheme is run by the Norfolk County Council service Educator Solutions.
