On Monday 25th July 2016, the Centre’s Director of Education, Dr. Tom Harrison, presented at the Teach First Impact Conference 2016. In his presentation, titled ‘Giving character education the same status as academic subjects’, Tom made the case for character education to be integrated into the curriculum and outlined the merits of this for both teachers and pupils. During the session, Tom also explored what best practice in character education might look like and provided practitioners with the tools needed to replicate this in their schools. The Impact Conference was attended by over 4,300 leaders in education and explored four broad themes in education; the classroom and school leadership, research and policy, charities and social enterprises and leadership.
