New Practical Handbook: Character Education and Mentoring

16th December 2020Publications

The Centre has recently published Character Education and Mentoring, produced in collaboration with Imani Academy. The practical handbook offers an overview of the value of virtues and character education for mentors in education, going on to present a case study and practical guidance for those looking to introduce a character-led approach to mentoring. Key takeaway points noted within the Handbook include the need to: create a bespoke whole school mentoring programme in line with the mission, vision and ethos of the school; train staff to be mentors, equip them with tools to provide quality 1-2-1 support for mentees; record and feedback to the mentee how their character strengths are being demonstrated through the mentoring sessions, reflect on what is going well and where there is room for growth.
