TUC 'A Better Way to Work' resources

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.

Same But Different

This activity can be run as the first activity in a group night about refugee issues, to get Elfins thinking about people who might seek sanctuary in the UK, what they need and how we can help them.

You will need: chalk or string

Time: 15 minutes

Draw a chalk circle on the floor, or make one in string, about the size of a group circle.

Ask everyone to stand just outside the circle, and to jump into it when a statement is read that applies to them.

Can I Come In?

You will need: Copies of the three role cards ‘Refugees’, ‘Immigration Officers’ and ‘Observers’. Copies of the information sheet ‘The right to asylum – international law’. Download these from the bottom of this page. 

This is a role play exploring the experience and rights of refugees seeking sanctuary in another country.

Divide everyone into three groups (they don’t have to be the same size),
