National Careers Week (4-9 March) is an important part of the school calendar, and an integral part of our Careers and Progression programme. This year is more exciting than ever, as we offer educators and young people even more comprehensive information, guidance and support on careers in the screen industries as part of our expanded 2024 programme.

Delivering with the support of the BFI, awarding National Lottery funding, we are hosting several UK-wide screen industry careers events for educators and their students, including a raft of career panels throwing a spotlight on the broad range of screen industry roles, including everything from directing to working in the games industry.

Two panels will be taking place in-person at BAFTA in London, and both will be available for schools across the UK to join for free online. One panel will be for 11-14-year-olds, and the other for 15-19-year-olds, and they are being held in partnership with BAFTA in celebration of National Careers Week, and International Women's Day on 8 March. There are still a few spaces available to join the 11-14 session in-person, and both sessions can be joined online.

We will also be hosting an additional Working in TV & Film Panel Event on Friday 8 March at 10:00am, also celebrating both National Careers Week and International Women's Day. At this event, in partnership with Pact and Speakers for Schools, three experienced independent producers, whose companies make factual programming for top broadcasters and streamers in the UK and overseas, will be discussing their roles as both producers and business owners. They will be sharing information about their routes into the industry, and the skills needed for a successful career in independent production. Educators and careers professionals can express interest in taking part in our Working in TV and Film panel until noon on Thursday 7 March.

In addition, we have a further twelve film careers Q&A events taking place across the UK throughout March as part of our free Spring Screenings programme. Find out more and book your free screenings and events today.

Meanwhile, our careers page aims to keep careers professionals and educators up-to-date with the essential information and resources needed to advise on opportunities across the screen industries. Whether its classroom resources, videos from past events, or podcasts offering insight into the industry, you can find it on our dedicated careers page.
