This resource introduces students aged 11 to 16 to a range of potential careers in the film industry through a variety of learning activities, with cross-curricular links to STEAM subjects and a variety of skills. It has been created to respond to the need for new, homegrown talent by providing an opportunity for students to explore how they might see themselves as part of the industry. By watching clips and interviews, researching and trying out well-known and unfamiliar roles in the sector, learners can begin to understand the skills they are already developing across the curriculum that could one day translate to fulfilling careers. 

This comprehensive resource has been produced by Into Film in partnership with BAFTA, Creative Skillset, The Production Guild, Film Distributors' Association, The Industry Trust and UK Cinema Association. All educators should download the PPT, Educators' Notes, and whichever Student Workbook and Skills Audit PDFs are suitable for their cohort (11-14 or 14-16).

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.

What our educators say

"Our SATs results this year were great, both progress and attainment in reading and writing have improved compared with last year, which we feel has been largely as a result of integrating the Into Film strategies."
