The best kind of learning is the kind when you don't even realise you're learning. That's a philosophy we've built into all our filmmaking training courses. The learning is embedded in the creative processes of research, assimilation, visualisation and discussion that are integral to making films.
Working with the University of Bristol Graduate School of Education, where all our filmmaking courses are road-tested, we have developed unique expertise in delivering CPD for teachers. On our courses, we give you a template that you can apply with your students. It's always very hands-on and puts you, as the learner, at the centre of everything. Some teachers who come on the courses say that they've gained the confidence to develop teaching ideas they already had; others go away with brand new ideas they say they'd never have dreamed of. What they all say is that the courses are great fun!
Most schools have made significant investments in ICT hardware and sometimes this expensive equipment doesn't get used to its fullest potential. Our filmmaking, media skills and ICT courses are the key to unlocking that potential.
Please note: all courses for teachers are now administered by cpdforteachers.com
