The Into Film Education Ambassadors are a group of distinguished educators from across the UK that provide advice, insights, and feedback that help shape the Into Film programme.

This core group of film loving education experts meet at least three times a year in their respective regional groups to share opinions, best practice and engage in professional development opportunities. They are also advocates in promoting the value of film education and the Into Film offer amongst their peers and wider communities.

An Into Film Education Ambassador...

  • Advocates the Into Film programme and all it offers by sharing experiences and success stories as far and wide as possible
  • Inspires colleagues and learners alike to reap the benefits of using film for personal and educational development
  • Supports others by sharing good practice and exploring opportunities to collaborate
  • Is a trusted source for knowledge, understanding and insight towards the education sector
  • Enables learners to engage with film-related opportunities through encouragement and support.

Being an Into Film Ambassador has helped me provide a safe, welcoming environment for many young people and effectively promote the use of film to boost literacy at all levels in Secondary school.

Below are a selection of News and Views articles and case studies which demonstrate the value of our Education Ambassadors, and give a sense of the sort of things they get up to, from discussing Black History Month, and giving advice on running virtual Into Film Clubs during the COVID-19 era, to winning prestigious Into Film Awards and facilitating professional film industry insiders to visit their schools.

Our Education Ambassadors are spread across the country, with some based in rural locations. Kevin Beattie from Belleek Primary School in Northern Ireland and Jen Skinner from the Isle of Tiree in Scotland have much to share on the benefits of a running rural film club.

The support, and input of our Education Ambassadors is invaluable to our work. We believe that when an effective and engaging educational tool such as film works, the best people to share and shout about that success are those that see those impacts first-hand. Our Education Ambassadors offer a credible and trusted representative voice to all that we do. We are grateful to these film leaders and their schools for their ongoing passion and commitment.

I am part of a passionate national network of fellow IF ambassadors who each have many varied and unique perspectives of how film can aid young people in understanding the world around them. I immensely enjoy the relationships and interactions that being part of this group allows
