New 10 Year Anniversary Book: ‘Character and Virtues: 10 Years of the Jubilee Centre’


14th April 2022


As part of the Centre’s 10-year anniversary celebrations, Director of Strategic Initiatives Aidan Thompson has authored Character and Virtues: 10 Years of the Jubilee Centre to capture the key areas of focus of the Jubilee Centre’s work since 2012. The book tells the story of the Centre from its launch in May 2012, through the Jubilee journey of major grant phases between 2012 and 2022, to the Centre’s ten-year horizon project, discussing the key areas of work covered during this time including: schools; the professions; youth social action; and the virtues of gratitude and phronesis. The publication also discusses the ways in which the Centre has engaged partners and created meaningful impact both in the UK and internationally, playing a significant role in the fields of character and virtues whilst creating tangible impact at education policy-level and on the practice of character education in schools. This book aims to be of interest to those who have followed any part of the Jubilee journey, as well as researchers into character and virtues and character educators in schools and universities. The book will be launched at the House of Lords on 20th May 2022.
