David Puttnam

Description

This programme is subtitled.

An Oscar-winning filmmaker whose successes include Chariots of Fire and The Killing Fields, David Puttnam is passionate about education and the parallels between the film world and teaching.

He tells the late Ted Wragg how the Teaching Awards have been a "significant success". "It is now part of the landscape of the teaching profession, which is nice. It does throw a completely positive spotlight on the wonderful work that is happening."

Puttnam is excited about the potential of ICT in the classroom: "There's no reason why a teacher in their classroom shouldn't have a BAFTA mask for having created something quite outstanding."

But he's sceptical about the government flagship policy of academies: "If you look at the settings into which those academies find themselves, some are extremely appropriate, some of them are extremely inappropriate."
