Each term Into Film is proud to present a series of free online training webinars, offering CPD opportunities for UK state schools, colleges and other youth settings. We recognise how important advance planning is for teachers, so we're delighted to present our webinars for the summer term well in advance, giving you plenty of time to enrol and get prepared.

While our Learning Platform offers a host of 'always-on' online training courses, our webinars are live one-off online events, with different topics tackled each term. By attending these sessions, you'll discover alongside your peer educators how film can benefit your teaching and learning practice, and have the opportunity to ask our team any burning questions you have regarding film-focused learning.

From demystifying screen careers and filmmaking, to exploring how film can raise literacy levels and support PSHE lessons, our webinars are there to help you get the most out using film in the classroom.

To enrol, you'll need an Into Film Account - don't worry, it's free and only takes a moment to set up. Plus, you'll also gain access to hundreds of free educational resources, further training opportunities, and with a Public Video Screening (PVS) Licence, hundreds of free films to stream safely and legally with Into Film+.

We've also scheduled our upcoming webinars for the autumn 2024 and spring 2025, so keep an eye out for those to be announced soon in the coming months.

Below, you can find out more about the sessions taking place in summer 2024. All sessions are suitable for all educators of 5-19-year olds. If you need any technical support, have any additional accessibility requirements, or questions please contact onlinehelp@intofilm.org.
