Abstract

This chapter presents the outcomes of the ‘reflective group discussions’ undertaken as part of the photovoice research with nine young people aged between 16 and 20 years young people engaged with employment support programmes in Edinburgh, Scotland. Photovoice employs photography and group dialogue to deepen understanding of a community issue or concern. The methodology was used in order to enable participants to represent their lives; to promote critical dialogue; and to reach policy‐makers (Wang & Burris, 1997; Wang, 2006). Through the photographs and discussions we sought to understand young people’s experiences, ideas and aspirations; and what they think are the most important issues for young people looking for work in Edinburgh today.
