Ethos Education


Take-One.TV provides free discussion-starter films, with teacher’s guides, suitable for use in a wide range of educational and community settings, and ideal for school tutor periods. Each short film poses thought-provoking questions.

‘Take-One is a perfect addition to Tutor Time. I was able to pick it up and run with it without need for much preparation. The video was pitched well and the excellent questions, with their rigour and challenge, provoked discussion and insight. The students had so much to contribute and they were able to scaffold the discussion into various other areas.’
Cheryl Miller, Head of PSHCE, Loreto Grammar School
