Catherine joined the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues at the University of Birmingham in September 2020 as a Research Fellow. Currently, Catherine is working on research into character education theory and pedagogies; she aims to contribute to the development of character education within UK schools.
Catherine created a set of resources for pupils aged 5-7 years old called, ‘Read Grow Go’. Each lesson in the programme uses a story as a stimulus to teach a different character virtue. The lessons provide teachers with resources, practical activities and questions that promote class discussion and individual reflection on each of the virtues.
