Into Film have partnered with the BFI to create Switched On: Careers in the Screen Industry, a brand-new free resource providing anyone who offers careers advice to young people the most up-to-date tools and knowledge about the creative screen industries.

Support young people aged 11-19 to make informed decisions about their future. Switched On helps to close the gap, bust myths, extend reach and raise awareness of opportunities in the screen industries across the UK. The resource also includes an activity sheet and information on shortage roles, pen portraits and useful links to resources, courses and training across the UK.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
