Centre Publishes Statement on Character, Virtue and Practical Wisdom in Professional Practice

University of Birmingham

The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues is delighted to publish its Statement on Character, Virtue and Practical Wisdom in the Professions. The statement is founded on research conducted by the Jubilee Centre which explored character and virtues in law, teaching and medicine, and others in the field and has been developed in consultation with members of various professions, educators, policy makers, professional organisations and academics. The overall aim of the statement is to open up space for renewed debate, discussion and dialogue about the place of character, virtue and practical wisdom in professional practice. A key aim of the statement is to suggest some ways in which education and training for professional practices might be improved to accommodate the development of phronesis and the cultivation of virtuous character.
