The Learning on Screen Awards are the UK’s only celebration of film and media production in education. Recognising the talents of students, broadcasters and university and college staff, the awards are the perfect way to get innovative educational media showcased on a national stage.

Last year we were overwhelmed by the standard and diversity of our student entries. Encompassing drama, documentary, comedy and animation, we saw the very best student productions from across the UK, with Further Education category winner Just Some Morning Tea also scooping the Jury Award. 

For 2017 we’re widening our scope even further, welcoming entries from school sixth forms in our FE student category for the first time. Entries are open to sixth form student productions made as part of any course. 

Productions are judged by a panel of independent experts including broadcasters, academics and educators, with all shortlisted entries screened at our awards ceremony at the BFI in London in April next year.  

Please share this information to your sixth form media departments, and any other departments where film and media production forms part of a course. 

We can also send you some postcards to help you spread the word - just let us know what address to send them too. 

For more information and to enter visit: bufvc.ac.uk/learningonscreen or email: awards@bufvc.ac.uk

We look forward to receiving your entries!

Yours sincerely,

Lucy Witcomb (Events Officer)

Musical Futures: Just Play is the new skills-building approach from Musical Futures.

  • For any teacher of years 4-6 who wants to make music with their classes, this approach to music teaching has been designed and scaffolded for teachers who don’t consider themselves to be music specialists, which means that no previous musical experience is necessary
  • For primary music specialists, Just Play can be adapted for use with a range of instruments or to feed and build on WCITT teaching.
  • For secondary music teachers this is a great way to build basic instrumental skills on a range of instruments commonly found in the secondary classroom and is ideal for use with years 7-9.

Please note that Musical Futures: Just Play is designed to enhance, rather than replace, any specialist music provision that primary schools may already engage with. See more
