Date published: 27 January 2012

Type: Surveys / Evaluations
Organisational phase: Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure

Given the developments in the curriculum which have taken place in the formal education sector, and the growing importance of the moving image industry in Northern Ireland, there was a review of the Wider Literacy Strategy with the skills-based education of young people. 


Such a review allows for the development of a well-focused learning strategy, in conjunction with the other educational programmes from providers funded by Northern Ireland Screen, in line with the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure’s overall learning strategy. The evaluation included the following organisations: Northern Ireland Screen’s After School Film Clubs; Cinemagic; Nerve Centre; Queen’s Film Theatre.
