Published Projects at the Jubilee Centre

Projects at the Jubilee Centre run over four phases, Gratitude BritainService Britain, Transformative Britain, and most recently, Celebration Britain. 

The Centre’s work in Gratitude BritainService Britain and Transformative Britain has explored key research questions around gratitude, service, virtues in public and professional life and how the development of good character can contribute to British society.

character education

The current research phase, Celebration Britain (2021-2023), builds upon and extends this previous research and seeks to answer the following primary research questions:

  • What evidence is there that a neo-Aristotelian approach to character education works and how can this evidence be best celebrated and disseminated?
  • Where do ‘gaps’ exist in the existing Centre evidence base and how can these gaps be addressed through building on and extending the Centre’s existing evidence?
  • Why is developing a focus on the civic virtues necessary in the extension of character cultivation from individual schools and professions to society at large?
  • What new challenges and opportunities for character education are brought about by online and digital media, and what role might the concept of ‘cyber-phronesis’ play with regard to these.
