Literacy is a key skill that all young people will develop during the course of their education, be it through traditional English studies, or in developing similarly important skills like science and computer literacy. We're firm believers that film can be used as an aid for furthering engagement and understanding in all areas of the curriculum, but lends itself particularly well to the development of students' literacy.
Our findings show that film club leaders say that using our resources has helped to improve pupils' literacy skills by 73%.
