The Jubilee Centre has published an evidence-informed policy brief on Building Character through the Longer School Day. Informed by the latest research, the paper sets out the evidence base for developing character in young people through extra-curricular activities that form part of a proposed longer school day. Research is presented on four effective tools and methods for developing character, and suggestions about how these methods might be applied to extra-curricular activities are provided. The Centre seeks to further engage with and inform the political debate around character education and will continue to publish briefing papers, providing specific recommendations about the practical implications of research, covering a range of topical issues relating to character and virtue. All briefing papers will be made available on the Centre's website here.
