Download the resource inspired by the film
Our Careers Behind the Camera resource is a careers and PSHE-led assembly and cross-curricular programme of learning inspired by the production trainees behind Bond 25. Produced in partnership with Universal Pictures UK and ScreenSkills, the resource lifts the lid on the career paths into the industry and skills involved in working in different film production departments.
The three subject-specific lessons focus on literacy, maths and science skills respectively, and feature an interview with a Bond 25 trainee who provides practical, relatable advice for young people considering a career in film production.
This exclusive resource includes a multimedia suite of materials leveraging Bond's appeal to drive attainment and engagement in core STE(A)M subjects. Students will be able to watch AV trailer footage and unique interviews with No Time To Die trainees to enhance their appreciation of the film.
The resource also includes PowerPoint presentations, lesson plans, activity sheets, editable certificates and more - all developed in line with the curriculum. An additional Careers Behind the Camera online quiz gives students the chance to put their industry knowledge to the test.
On registration, you'll have the chance to receive one of 400 printed packs containing additional learning materials including careers posters, letters to teachers and careers skills reflective journals.
Please note: The image of James Bond holding a small gun, a signature device to his character imagery, has been used on some pages of the resource. We advise that teachers, as is their usual practice, use the materials in an appropriate way according to their individual school and students.
To complement our Careers Behind the Camera resource we’re running a creative writing competition to offer ten lucky winners a selection of official No Time To Die merchandise, comprising wireless headphones, a power bank, an umbrella, weekend bag, and an Aston Martin key chain.
To enter, students need to write a letter imagining they’re applying to a Universal film production. Addressing the producer, pupils need to explain which behind-the-scenes department they’d like to work in and why. They’ll need to pitch persuasively, making sure to mention the skills they’d bring to the role. The winners for this competition will be selected by Into Film, Universal and EON.
For more information, download our creative writing competition entry form to share with your class.
Closing date for entries is 5 November 2021. Terms and conditions apply.
In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
