Into Film Free CPD Opportunity

Through the Curriculum Innovation team's partnership with Into Film (www.intofilm.org/) we are able to offer a range of free full day, half day & twilight CPD sessions for schools around film literacy.

Into Film is a film education charity that puts film at the heart of the educational & personal development of children & young people aged 5-19 across the UK. Our Media Literacy project has worked with over 30 schools in the last 3 years & has evidence showing that progress in writing is accelerated through the use of film in the classroom. Pupils involved achieved on average 4 sub-levels of progress in writing & reading by the end of the year project & children have been more focussed & engaged in their Literacy lessons. There are presently two qualified local Into Film trainers; Tim Bleazard, Curriculum Innovation Team, & independent Literacy Consultant Philip Webb. Tim has coordinated & delivered the Bradford Media Literacy project for the last three years with the assistance Phil.

Training sessions focus on either Film Literacy or Film Making. Ideally sessions need a minimum of fifteen attendees.  For more information please contact tim.bleazard@theinnovationcentres.com or ring 01274 434818.
