Centre Launches the Kern Character Curriculum

The Centre, with the support of the Kern Family Foundation, has launched ‘The Character Curriculum’, a range of character education curriculum resources for children aged 4 to 16 years. Each suite of resources starts with an introductory module on the philosophy of virtue ethics, which enables students to access the language of virtue and provides an understanding of the process of virtue development. The subsequent lessons are centred around topics which have been chosen from statutory and non-statutory guidance for PSHE, Citizenship and the new Health and Relationships Education in the UK. Resources include detailed lesson plans for teachers, accompanying PowerPoints and photocopiable resources.

Research Fellow Ben Miller recently authored the article ‘Character in a Time of Crisis’ discussing The Character Curriculum for the University of Birmingham’s CoSS Blog, this is available here. More information, including the full suite of resources is available here or the link below.
