Pathfinder Project Opportunity - Intentional Character Education


We are looking for 5 Secondary School head teachers to take part in a short-term pathfinder project.


The purpose is to establish the extent to which an intentional approach to the character development of pupils could be successful in supporting their vision for the School and the Scottish Government’s aspirations for education.


The commitment involved would be to attend a detailed development day in May/June with four other head teachers. There will be specialist input from the University of Birmingham. We hope the Head will then seek to test a framework for intentional character education as they see fit. A case study will then be produced in December which will highlight the opportunities and challenges of greater focus on character development in each school. Staff cover and travel costs are covered where necessary.
