Project develops media skills of young people at HMP & YOI Polmont
Students work with establishment to produce film and series of photographs
Full Story

​A creative project between HMP & YOI Polmont, Edinburgh Napier University and Fife College has given an insight into what life is like within Scotland’s national facility for male young offenders.

The project has seen a group of six male learners within the establishment’s learning centre – which is led and developed by Fife College - work with students from Edinburgh Napier to produce a film and series of photographs that touch on their reflections of their time within the establishment so far.

Through a series of sessions with BA (Hons) Photography and BA (Hons) Television students, the learners have spent time developing a range of photographic and film-making techniques and have collated their efforts into a short film and photography exhibition. The results recently went on display at a celebration event which gave learners and their families the chance to celebrate their academic and personal achievements.
