The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues in the School of Education will be running a free two-week online course What is Character? Virtue Ethics in Education, in partnership with FutureLearn.  Starting on 24th October 2016, the course will explore how character might be taught in a conscious, planned and reflective way, enabling you to gain practical knowledge on taking character education into your classroom. The course will draw on the insights of leading experts in the fields of character education and virtue ethics, exploring with you the theoretical and philosophical basis for character education, including a background to virtue ethics.  You’ll also meet teachers and head teachers with first-hand experience of the transformative power of implementing character education in day-to-day practices within a school.
