The TUC has a range of resources to help young people to learn about employment rights and workplace issues. A Better Way to Work, the TUC schools' resource pack, is primarily aimed at school students studying Key Stage 4 in schools, providing activities which help teachers to prepare students for work experience, citizenship and other work-related activities. However, much of the material can also be used with students aged up to 19. Unit 2 also contains activities specifically aimed at Young Apprentices.
Welcome to the homepage for Education for The Alternative, Woodcraft Folk's presence at the March for The Alternative in London on Saturday 26th March. This will be a very large, peaceful march that will bring together people from all sectors of society - trade unionists, public sector workers, students, unemployed people, and ordinary families.
At the March Woodcraft Folk volunteers are creating a moving safe space with a family friendly atmosphere where children and young people will be able to join the demostration while remaining safe. We’re also teaming up with the TUC to run a lost kids space and an activities marquee in Hyde Park with political crafts and co-operative games.
