Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 2 sections
- 1 Modern Slavery Spectrum
- 2 You and Your Organisation
Modern Slavery is an umbrella term that covers various words like slavery, servitude, forced labour & human trafficking.
There are many different categories that sit within these types and they often overlap, so a victim of one type of slavery can often be a victim of two or three.
Throughout this course, we will be sharing case studies to raise awareness of the most common types and to show you how to spot the signs.
After Section 1, you will have a better understanding of Modern Slavery.
In this section, we’ll discuss what you and your organisation can do to help eradicate it and will cover:
- How to report any concerns or suspicions
- Compliance with the Modern Slavery Act
- Working practices and policies
- Your organisation's supply chain
And we include a couple of extra case studies from two industries that are high risk for modern slavery.
ABOUT THIS COURSE
Modern Slavery is an on-going issue within the United Kingdom. In 2017, the National Referral Mechanism reports that over 5000 potential victims were submitted, from 116 different nationalities. Which is a 35% increase from 2016. In fact, there are more slaves in the world today (40 million) than ever before.
Modern-day slavery is a crime. It includes slavery, human trafficking, forced or compulsory labour and servitude. People subject to slavery have to work against their will and do not have freedom of choice.
Someone is defined as being a victim of slavery if they are:
- forced to work
- controlled or owned by an individual or organisation that uses physical or mental exploitation
- dehumanised and is bought or sold as 'property'
- is constrained or has restricted freedom of movement
- deceived into servitude
This online Modern Slavery training course aims to educate users on identifying signs of modern-day slavery and to give confidence to people to speak up about it.

Why is this training important?
It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.
The Modern Slavery Act 2015, is designed to combat modern-day slavery within the UK.
The Act was created in order to help law enforcement to punish those who are involved in these acts and also increasing the amount of support that victims receive. As well as other factors, the Act aims to;
- create an independent anti-slavery commissioner
- require businesses over a certain size to publish any actions taken to ensure there is no modern slavery within their business or supply chain
- introduce a defence for victims
- assign an obligation to the Secretary of State to produce statutory guidance for victims.
The Act will "send the strongest possible message to criminals that if you are involved in this disgusting trade in human beings, you will be arrested, you will be prosecuted and you will be locked up."
