There are many projects that are inspired by Values-based Education. Below are some of the projects we work with or commend.
Ethos for Disruptive Youngsters
The Ethos Intervention Programme
focuses on those youngsters who for whatever reason have rejected the values and norms of society and provide endless disruption within the school and classroom. These are not necessarily youngsters with mental health problems or 'isms', but rather youngsters who may come from a background where the usual socially shared values do not necessarily exist.
The programme is currently working with a group of youngsters which includes a young man whose father is in gaol, mother with a serious drug dependency problem and living in a community where normative values do not necessarily exist. The project is very much hands on with a team of trained mentors, working with a group of such youngsters on a once a week (or more) basis in order to re-engage them in the norms of the school and society through the development of cognition, ethical understanding and emotional literacy.Web
The Family Values Scheme is program which encourage parents and families to engage with their children's studying and with the school. It uses values to create a series of fun tasks and challenges which families plan and carry out together within the flexibility of their own home.
The Family Values Scheme was created by Gill Ellis and Nicola S Morgan in 2009 and won the Leading Aspect Award in 2010 for its innovative way of engaging parents with schools and organisations.Web
