'Overqualified' is a project which focuses on the issues of overqualified migrant workers within the UK.
Many migrant workers have obtained a qualification of some sort in their home countries, and out of a desire for a better life for them and their families, they usually end up migrating to the UK. Unfortunately for some, the inability to convert their certificate or a language barrier leads them to end up working in a job which is below their skillset.
This project aims to bring attention to a topic which is rather hidden, allowing people who are in this situation to speak out and give their own account of the situation that they are in alongside potential ways for others to avoid being in the same situation.
This project was exhibited at the London College of Communication in May 2019 and comprises of still images and a multimedia which contains more information about the subjects and the work that they do.
The Multimedia can be found on Vimeo. The Vimeo icon is placed above the images.
