Areas of expertise:
Who is the resource aimed at?
Students who want some answers to questions such as "why are all my clothes made in Asia?" and "how do I get a pay rise?" - this is for you.
How can the resource be used?
Listen at your leisure on the bus, while you tidy your room or while you work. Teachers - you might even want to play this to students a bit at a time, before gently (read: enthusiastically) encouraging your students to have a read.
How does the resource link to the curriculum?
The podcast episode with Tanya, as an expert in Family Economics, Labour Economics, and Applied Economics links to the A-levels curriculum in Economics, particularly in the areas of microeconomics, labour markets, and family economics. Understanding these topics is important for students who are interested in pursuing further studies in economics or pursuing a career in economics or related fields.
How long will the activity take?
