Abstract

This research aimed to uncover the perspectives of twenty social care students working with ten post-16 learners with learning difficulties in the co-production of multimedia portfolios. The students’ reflective journals written about their work with the learners, revealed insights into the working practices of the institutions where they were based and the obstacles that they faced in achieving their goals with their learners. Three core categories identified in the data were: context, student anxiety over time-constraint, and student satisfaction. The study outlines the aims and objectives illustrating the potential for the research to contribute to academic knowledge, and make a difference to work concerned with developing accessible platforms of communication with people with learning difficulties. Finally, the research discusses the implications of the study, theorising ways in which co-producing multimedia portfolios can be developed as a means of self advocacy for people with learning difficulties.
