Gravity Jam is a sustainable Character Development Programme, for college students focused on enhancing navigation skills regarding professional and personal life choices. This Programme targets SMSC OFSTED requirements in three stages: Self-Awareness, Reality Mapping (relationship to myself, others and environment) and training practical skills.
Realised in collaboration with The British Council on a UK scale and we are leading the South of England Team.
The aim of the project is to contribute to the young person’s general wellbeing: becoming a competent (authentic and autonomous), moral (for yourself and your environment) and happy (flourishing in everyday life) agent.
Who Are We?
We are four professionals with competencies and experiences in developing curricula and frameworks for civic/moral/character/peace education, teacher training, lecturing, doctoral research in moral character development, entrepreneurship, Erasmus+ non formal education facilitation and with NGOS working with young people.
We offer a Character Development Programme with two variations: one day workshop or two day workshop, both including follow-ups. The follow-ups represent the sustainable aspect of the programme, supporting the students with integrating the newly acquired competencies.
