Character Education is much more than just a subject. It's also something that isn't new to us as we've been developing character in young people for a long time in our work and practice. Character Education contributes to the culture that grows within families, classrooms, schools and communities. It should be instrumental in helping young people develop values and skills essential for life during and beyond education.
The most impact we see is when we work in partnership on a whole school approach and with long term vision and goals; working to strengthen policy, establish support networks, train staff and develop skills. We achieve this by:
Embedding character education in balance with academia.
Working with schools that want to develop a culture and ethos of mutual respect, high aspirations and personal and academic achievement.
Developing skills that are essential for education, employment and adult life.
Empowering young people to deal with issues they are faced with.
We engage young people in education; so they develop self-belief and have high aspirations and goals for their futures, regardless of their background and social class.
