Message from Character Scotland Trustees
The Trustees of Character Education Scotland are delighted to advise that they have agreed over the last few months with the Trustees of the Association of Character Education the transfer of all of Character Education Scotland’s activities and research to the Association of Character Education. We, the Character Education Scotland trustees, firmly believe that this transfer is very much in the best interests of the work of both charities and, in particular, in the interests of the pupils, staff and schools in Scotland and elsewhere with whom Character Education Scotland has worked over the last ten years or so. We believe that this is a really good fit for our ethos, and that Association of Character Education is extremely well placed to take forward and develop the work we have been doing to date, and that it will provide a sound basis for the future of character education in Scotland going forward.
A key part of this transfer is an undertaking by the Association of Character Education to continue with the Inspire/Aspire poster programme for the 2020/2021 academic year in line with Character Education Scotland’s charitable objectives and following Character Education Scotland’s development work for character education over the past years, although there will be some changes necessitated by the restriction imposed as a result of the pandemic.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the schools, pupils and staff with whom we have worked in the past for their constant support and encouragement and we wish them well for the future. For further information please contact The Association of Character Education at: https://character-education.org.uk/
Message from Association for Character (ACE) Education, CEO, Tom Haigh
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the trustees of Character Scotland and everyone else who has been involved in the charity's work, which has brought innovative character-based programmes to schools in Scotland.
ACE will be working hard to continue the organisation's legacy, and support Scottish schools to embed a whole-school approach to character and values. Our aim is to develop a network of Scottish schools that take a planned, intentional and coordinated approach to character education. Our mission is to recognise, enable and share outstanding best practice, so character and values can become the very DNA of the schools that we work with.
If you would like to know more about how your school can be supported by ACE, you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
