A group of creative media studies students with learning difficulties from Coleg Cymoedd, a further education college in South East Wales are taking part in YRE. The qualification has a research unit and a film making unit so taking part in YRE fits in particularly well with their learning objectives. Students took part in a YRE workshop outlining the problems of litter and an initial planning session for their YRE film. The tutor will carry on planning and developing their films with them. They also went on a visit to a local beach to witness first hand the effects of marine litter on our environment. The visit was enjoyed by all and they were intrigued by the amount of micro plastics found on the beach. These students are a great example of how YRE can inspire and involve all educational abilities.
