Research Project collaboration with the Jubilee Centre, UoB

Friday 15 February 2019

Two research fellows from the Jubilee Centre for Character Education and Virtues visited Ark Boulton Academy this term to embark on a collaboration with the academy and a research project focusing on ‘Character Education Research.’

Michael Fullard and Paul Watts commented: “Can I say a huge thank you for the visit. We found it really useful and we were extremely impressed by your staff and Ark Boulton. I think you should be very proud of what you have achieved and what you are doing. As you said, this is the real reason we all went into teaching.”

The research team are seeking to understand teachers’ perceptions of character and character education in teaching, as well as the very important issue of how teachers are prepared and supported to do this via current Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

We are honoured to be collaborating on this project. You can read more about this project on the Jubilee Centre website.
