Centre Launches Recruiting for Character Short Films

17th August 2023Character

The Jubilee Centre is delighted to announce the launch of the Recruiting for Character project.

The Centre has undertook the project in order to support school leaders through the recruitment process. When schools have a focus on character education, character is given prominence during the process. Selecting new staff based on their understanding of the importance of character education, as well as their pedagogical expertise, ensures that potential new staff recognise the moral dimension of teaching as being equally as important as subject knowledge.

Working closely with six schools/multi-academy trusts and the Association for Character Education, the Jubilee Centre has produced four short films which focus on the key areas of recruitment in schools:

  • The Advert
  • The Application
  • The Interview
  • The Induction.

These short films provide examples of ‘outstanding’ practice from across ‘Schools of Character’ and aim to guide and support school leaders to ensure that character is given prominence during the recruitment process.

The films can be viewed here.
