Funding Success – DfE Character Education Grant

Congratulations to Professor Trevor Cooling, Director of the National Institute for Christian Education Research (NICER) for being part of a successful bid to the Department for Education for a Character Education Grant.

The project will pilot ‘What If Learning‘, a cross-curricular model developed by an international partnership of educators. It aims to equip teachers with a practical approach to promoting the development of positive virtues and character traits in the classroom, which lead to success in learning and increased engagement in community and voluntary activities. The model will be piloted in 20 schools across 4 dioceses. The resources will then be made available to teachers across the country.

The project is one of 14 that will receive funding through the Department for Education’s £3.5 million character grants scheme.

We wish Trevor every success with the project.

Funder: Department for Education
Fund name: Character Education Grant
Value: £124,820
