The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues is pleased to announce a new project, ‘Teaching Character’, funded by the Department for Education (DfE). The grant forms part of the Department’s character grants scheme which has seen 14 organisations awarded funding for initiatives that help instil character in young people. The project will run until 31st March 2016 and work across England with 28 teachers from 28 different state funded schools in order to create an innovative resource for building character within the school curriculum. The 14 subjects that will be covered are Mathematics, English, Science, Geography, History, Computing, Languages, PSHE, Citizenship, Art and Design, Music, Design and Technology, Religious Education and Physical Education. The materials will then be disseminated to all state schools nationally.
More information about other grants awarded under this scheme are available on the DfE's website.
