We are delighted to announce the launch of our new film!
For those who are interested here’s the script:
Education, education education
It’s the most powerful tool we have
It has the ability to change who you are
Enable you to be whoever you want to be
To stretch you and empower you
It transforms how we think how we feel and how we behave
It can create thriving communities
Unlock passions that you might never have discovered
It changes our contribution to society
Alters the course of your life
And no one can take it away from you.
How we educate the next generation is the key to our future
Not only as individuals but also as a society.
That’s why at the University of Reading we are really committed to developing caring and professional practitioners
Carrying out world leading research
Training you to transform lives.
Become part of our global community and share our passion.
At the Institution of Education we practice what we teach.
This script resonates deeply with us here at the Institute of Education as we want to provide this generation and those to come with the skills to truly develop and succeed at whatever they aspire to.
We asked Professor Catherine Tissot, Head of the Institute of Education for her thoughts on the film and this is what she had to say:
“I’m really proud of this film as it captures the Institute of Education and who we are succinctly. This film shows the passion that staff here have for what we do best. It means a lot to us here at the Institute of Education and to me personally. My father used to say that education is the most powerful tool we have and that no one can take it away from you. This has stuck with me my entire life and it lies at the core of what we do here. I’ve shown the video to several people now and they all smile and sigh when the little girl says the line. It really is a powerful statement and she delivers it much better than I ever could!”
You may already know all about our filming this summer, with the images of school visits and film crews on our social media channels.
Our partners and staff went all-out to help us make this film and are due a big thank you, especially the fantastic partnership schools who helped us film: the Bulmershe School, Maiden Erlegh School and Christ the King Catholic Primary in Whitley.
Thanks also to two of our talented alumni: Laura Prime, now working as a Secondary Art and Design NQT and Tayla Sutton, a Primary School Direct trainee.
And very special thanks indeed go to the wonderful pupils who took part – we could not have made such a brilliant film without you!
