In pairs students record as many of the jobs connected with Fairtrade as they can remember. How important does the class think Fairtrade is in the workplace?
Explain that students are going to sit mock Fairtrade interviews using either the sample job description and person specification or the job description and person specification they wrote after the previous activity.
Split the class into half. Each half, working in pairs, write a list of Fairtrade interview questions
e.g. explain how your job is connected to Fairtrade
How important is Fairtrade to your job?
What would you do to promote Fairtrade if you got this job?
Students from each 'half' of the class work together asking and answering questions.
Did they find it easy or hard to answer these questions from a Fairtrade point of view? Is Fairtrade important in employment? Should it be more important?
Provide a template of a suitcase for each student. At the end of the lesson ask students what they are going to take away with them from the lesson. This could be new information, something which they found interesting, or a new skill. They then draw/depict this in their suitcase.
At the beginning of the next lesson students can look at their suitcase again. Can they remember what they took and why they decided it was important? The suitcase can be added to throughout the topic.
