The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues is cited in the newly published Department for Education (DfE) 'Character Education: Framework Guidance' (November, 2019). The Centre is cited in the ‘where to get help’ section of the Framework, which sets out non-statutory guidance to schools on character education and development for pupils in England and Wales. The Centre’s A Habit of Service research is also referenced with regards to social action and service being a route to developing character, and that young people aged ten were more than twice as likely to form a habit of service than those aged 16-18 engaging in service activities for the first time.
The Framework guidance is based on recommendations from the character advisory group that Centre Director Prof. James Arthur is a member of.
The London Oratory School, Fulham, is featured as a case study school in the Framework. Dan Wright, Headteacher at the Oratory School, is a Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the Jubilee Centre. The School recently produced teaching resources that elucidate the Oratory School’s approach to character.
