Boston College Project
Boston College was the first college in the UK to work with the GLAA in embedding the subject of modern slavery and labour exploitation across its range of academic and vocational courses.
The year-long course saw all 1,500 college students given a tutorial on workers’ rights and a guide to spotting the signs of modern slavery. An Employment Rights and Responsibilities Week provided students with practical sessions designed to equip them with knowledge about how to protect themselves from exploitation. We also commissioned a creative arts brief for more than 100 visual arts and media students. A selection of their work can be found below.
An evaluation of the pilot was conducted by the University of Nottingham’s Rights Lab, home to the world’s leading modern slavery experts. We are delighted to share our work and the resources to encourage other education and training providers to embed modern slavery prevention into their curriculum.
