The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues is delighted to launch its Character Education Evaluation Handbook for Schools. The Handbook, which has been developed in consultation with an expert group of academics, teachers and other educationalists, provides a practical introduction to the evaluation of character education in primary and secondary schools, equipping them with the tools needed to enhance and improve their character education provision.
Divided into an introduction, and four subsequent sections, the Handbook:
- Provides advice, guidance and tools to enable schools to implement the principles and practice of self-evaluation to enhance and improve their character education provision;
- Is intended to be a source of inspiration that schools should adapt to their own context;
- Is based on the premise that by using varied forms of self-evaluation teachers can develop a holistic and formative picture of their school’s character-education profile; and
- Is designed to support the recent movement in schools to self-evaluate their own practice. School-led approaches to self-evaluation are now commonplace in most schools, including the Ofsted framework whereby inspectors often use the outcomes from self-evaluation as the starting point for their inspections.
