Students studying the FE Choices programme have created a film around the theme of being different.
As part of the Creative Media module, students were asked to prepare scripts and produce a short film that promotes the positive experience of people living with learning difficulties, including Autism, physical / mental disabilities, ADHD and anger problems.

This deeply touching film is a powerful celebration of what it is like to be different, and ultimately it makes us realise that we are all different in so many ways. The message is that we need to celebrate diversity in all of its guises.

We are always available to talk, so please contact us if you would like to discuss any support needs.
