This Autumn, we've adapted some of our most popular training courses to be delivered online as webinars! We're also supporting teachers by waiving the admin fee for the sessions, making them easier to access than ever before. 

We'll give you the skills to use film as an innovative tool to access the curriculum, providing interactive and engaging ways to help your students catch up this term. Our webinars will be interactive, meaning you can speak directly to our practitioners and also share knowledge with other teachers about how best to put your new skills into practice back in the classroom.

Our sessions run from September through to November and cover literacy, mindfulness, careers and filmmaking. In order to access the free courses all you need to do is register to have a free Into Film account (if you already have an account you'll just need to log in). Once you've signed up to an Into Film account you'll also get access to lots of classroom ready resources, further helping you embed your learning from the session.
