Schools Outreach

MetFilm School is dedicated to connecting with schools and colleges across the UK and beyond via our Outreach programme and delivered by our Outreach team. We are focussed on widening participation, creating real opportunities for our current and future students. As part of the programme we work with Schools and individuals to give students practical ways to:

  • Develop a better understanding of the creative industries.
  • Gain insights into film, media, TV and online content creation.
  • Understand what higher education and professional training means.
  • Make more informed choices for their future.
