Session 16

'Unpaid Britain': an interdisciplinary and empirical study on the labour market, critical employability and the student experience

Nick Clark, Research Assistant, Business School, Middlesex University London
Sophie Knowles, Programme Leader Journalism, Middlesex University London
Valeria Graziano, Research Fellow, Art and Design Institute, Middlesex University London

This symposium draws from research from the Unpaid Britain Project to demonstrate ways research can be exploited fully and shared across departments – in this case, business, media and art – to benefit students fully and improve our curricula, the student experience, and our understanding of the term employability. 

Key words:
Work experience, employability, workers' rights.
