"I've Taken Confidence Away from This": The Experiences and Impact of Moving Image Education with Young People Who Require More Choices, More Chances
Head, George; Jaap, Angela
Citizenship, Social and Economics Education, v14 n3 p159-171 Dec 2015
This article provides an overview of "Reel to Real," a Moving Image Education project undertaken with groups of young people who require "More Choices, More Chances," the overarching policy context in Scotland which aims to provide support for those young people aged 16-19 years who have completed compulsory education but find themselves not in employment, education or training. Supported by Skills Development Scotland, Scottish Screen (now Creative Scotland) and Urban Learning Space, "Reel to Real" aimed to promote learning with and through digital media. The overall project evaluation was to determine the benefits of learning and preparation for work in such a project as well as the experiences of the participants. This article focuses specifically on the perceptions and experiences of the young people involved in the project in order to understand what they felt they had gained from the project and how they perceived this may have helped them as they prepare to embark on employment. Data were gathered through observation and focus group interviews with groups of young people aged 16-19 years undertaking the "Reel to Real" project.
