http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/blog/2011/nov/04/job-scheme-internships-your-stories?fb=native&CMP=FBCNETTXT9038 I saw this on the Guardian about unpaid internships. The Guardian is starting an investigation into how widespread the practice is of hiring people to do "work experience" when they area really doing work requiring remuneration i.e. slave labour and are asking people to get in touch with their experiences. Although the form to send them refers to jobcentre and government agencies I wonder if it is worth us supply teachers using this to highlight the growing agency use of trial days etc. that I've seen mentioned on here. After all, we are public sector workers (for now!) so it could still tie in to what they are looking for. Although this has not as yet happened to me I have seen enough on the forums to know that a few people on here have already fallen foul of this, and the Guardian could put the word out if enough of us get in contact about the sorry state of affairs.
