Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Identifying simple, practical things that teachers across the 3 to 18 range can do to ensure that the environment they create and the learning experiences they design give young people the best possible opportunity to grow the broadest range of helpful character dispositions.

Evidence underpinning this approach

There is a growing body of research that shows a clear link between character and performance in school.
