Earlier this year Fashion-Enter’s Fashion Technology Academy was asked by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) to pilot the Level 1 Award in Workers’ Rights and Labour Exploitation.
The award was developed to raise awareness of the basic employment rights provided by UK law. Learners will gain an understanding of the job application process and how to spot if an advertisement is genuine or not. They will also gain the tools to enable them to understand whether or not they, or a colleague, are being exploited and the process for how this should be reported.
We are now delighted that a new podcast and video series has been created to support the qualification in workers’ rights developed by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) and Skills and Education Group. and Production Director Caroline Ash is featured on the video.
Episodes cover everything from how to apply for jobs safely to spotting the signs of modern slavery and learning how to report concerns to the GLAA and partner agencies.
All episodes are available to listen to on the GLAA website, as well as on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Amazon Music.
