Our programme demonstrates the benefits of using film as text to develop learners' critical thinking, analytical and contextualisation skills across the curriculum. Participants will develop a range of skills that are transferable between film and literary texts. Filmmaking has the power not only to increase educational attainment for pupils across the curriculum but also to empower teachers with an exciting new means of assessing learning. Our filmmaking training emphasises film as a teaching tool to encourage deep and active learning, and facilitates young people taking control of their own learning processes.
