Centre Director Speaks at Church of England Report Launch 16th October 2015 Centre News Character Education

Professor James Arthur, Director of the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues, spoke at the launch of a new Church of England report titled 'The Fruits of the Spirit: A Church of England Discussion Paper on Character Education' held at Church House, Westminster, on 16th October 2015.  Professor Arthur was invited to respond to the introductory speech given by Rt Revd Stephen Conway, Bishop of Ely and Chair of the National Society Council.  The conference, titled 'The Church of England’s approach to Character Education', aimed to launch a national conversation regarding the place, teaching and future of character education in the UK and to explore how the Church's education network can play its part in promoting character education across the country. The report, produced by the Church of England's Education Office and supported by the Jubilee Centre, looks at how character and character education are commonly understood in England, how Christian world-views might transform our understanding of character and character education, and discusses the implications for whole-school approaches to character education and for teacher education more widely. The report is available to read here and in the Centre Library.
