Young People and Learning Manager at FACT
I manage our young people and learning programmes at FACT.
The young people’s programme is called Freehand, which is informal and run on a project-by-project basis. This includes BFI Film Academy, our mental health app In Hand, and drop-in workshops called Do Something! Saturdays.
The learning programme is all about schools: FACT has a long history of collaborating with teachers and students to deliver curriculum-linked projects and visits involving a range of tech from Minecraft to Raspberry Pi. We also run CPD workshops for teachers, where we share know-how to demonstrate the many ways creative technology can enhance learning in the classroom.
