Overview:The challenge facing all schools today is how best to prepare pupils for the realities of living and competing in a global society. This calls for all educators to critically examine current practice to ensure that pupils are provided with the opportunities to develop the requisite knowledge and skills to help them flourish.
There is now a significant body of academic research highlighting how character qualities and leadership skills are directly linked to being able to flourish at school, in the workplace, and in a global society. If we believe the research findings to be true, and we do, then our schools must develop a values-led education strategy that is planned, organised and reflective. The teaching of character and leadership must be an integral part of this and underpin curriculum provision and wider learning experiences. Importantly, we must also provide focus to equipping and empowering teachers to deliver this cultural change.
TFL Education was established in 2008. Since that time we have consistently focused on writing and publishing fully resourced, interactive programmes to support the explicit teaching of character qualities and leadership skills to pupils and the professional development of teachers in this area.
The programmes are accredited by the Royal Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and endorsed by an increasing number of education leaders, who recognise the excellence of programmes that equip and empower individuals with the qualities of character and leadership skills to flourish and succeed in today's world.
