Continuous Professional Development and Leadership Support

Delivered in Person and Virtually

CPD Training

ACE’s CPD is developed and delivered by Gary Lewis, ACE Chair and Honorary Research Fellow at the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtue. Gary is a former Executive headteacher who has transformed schools through character, and is also an Advisor for the Department for Education on character education. If possible we recommend that the sessions are delivered in person, but there is the option for the training to be delivered virtually if required.

We offer the following sessions. Each is 90mins in length but can be shortened if required;

  1. Introduction to character education. What good character means and why it is important.
  2. Leadership, culture and ethos.
  3. Enabling positive behaviour and attitudes through character and virtue.
  4. Character and the curriculum. How to integrate character into core curriculum and stand alone lessons.
