Abstract:

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.
