Activities for children and young people include interactive screenings of films from the Moving Image Archive and workshops for school pupils and families.
We work in partnership with a range of organisations and creative practitioners to deliver exciting, high quality learning experiences.
We also offer learning opportunities for teachers.
We offer Career Long Professional Learning (CLPL) opportunities for teachers who are interested in using archive film. Sessions take place across Scotland, often delivered in partnership with other organisations and local authorities. For further information, contact Learning and Outreach via 0141 880 2302 or use the online enquiry form.
If you are excited by the potential learning opportunities archive film offers, and you would like to help us develop resources for schools and nurseries, please use the online enquiry form.
Our free schools screenings and workshops offer a unique insight into Scotland's past. Events are specially designed to engage young people with archive film and to encourage both teachers and pupils to take their learning further.

Scotland on Screen
Our online learning resource Scotland on Screen contains hundreds of films and clips from our collections to watch, discuss and use as inspiration for your own projects.
The films document over a century of Scottish lives on film, with particular reference to social, economic and environmental change.
Each film is accompanied by suggested activities for before and after watching, as well as links to other relevant films and videos. The film material has been selected and described for its relevance to the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence.
