Teacher education resources from The Jubilee Centre for Character & Virtues

The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues

The Teacher Training Workshop

The Teacher Training Workshop provides an introduction to character education and the work of the Jubilee Centre, for both primary and secondary courses, in the form of a PowerPoint presentation and accompanying teacher delivery notes. This lecture has been trialled and evaluated at three UK universities, with over 800 trainee teachers. The majority of trainee teachers agreed that the training they received from the Jubilee Centre, in the form of the Teacher Training Workshop, helped to develop their understanding of character education and was relevant to their profession. The Teacher Training Workshop and accompanying notes have been developed so that they can be delivered by teacher educators from across the country. It is recommended that the PowerPoint presentation is edited to suit specific ITE courses and that the workshop is followed-up with seminars throughout the training programme which address areas covered in the workshop.

My Character Reflective Journal

The My Character Reflective Journal is a six-week reflective journal, for use on teaching placements, which provides trainees with a space for structured daily reflection on their personal character strengths. It asks trainees to reflect on the three character strengths which were most important to them on each day whilst also providing a short written reflection at the end of each week. Trainee teachers who had completed the journal commented on the positive impact it had on their well-being and practice.

These resources provide a guide and teacher educators are encouraged to adapt them to best suit the needs of their course and current cohort.
