Students learn how to spot labour exploitation in the workplace

Students from an East Midlands college are to benefit from practical sessions designed to improve their knowledge of modern slavery and labour exploitation in the workplace.

In a statement, the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) revealed students at Boston College will benefit from sessions delivered by the college and the GLAA, including input from ACAS, the Salvation Army, Citizens Advice, local employers and community groups.

The aim is to provide students with information and knowledge about spotting the signs of labour exploitation, which they can take with them into the workplace.

All 1,500 full-time students, regardless of their particular course, will have a tutorial on workers’ rights and spotting the signs of modern slavery at some point in the academic year.

Visual Arts and Media students will also produce “new and innovative” concepts based on raising awareness of modern slavery and labour exploitation.

The GLAA will make a range of educational resources freely available for all other UK colleges and post-16 education providers at the end of the project.
