This publication provides a pedagogical framework that assists
students and others in deconstructing dominant narratives around
work, employability and careers, and explores alternative ways of
engaging with work and the economy. Training for Exploitation?
includes tools for critically examining the relationship between
education, work and the cultural economy. It provides useful
statistics and workshop exercises on topics such as precarity,
employment rights, cooperation and solidarity, as well as examples of
alternative educational and organising practices. Training for
Exploitation? shows how we can both critique and organise against a
system that is at the heart of the contemporary crises of work,
student debt and precarity.
