Tackling Modern Slavery

Around the world today some 40 million people are trapped in slavery. It’s not a remote issue: tens of thousands of modern day slaves are thought to be living in the UK, while countless more are involved in some aspect of the products and services that we make use of in the UK.

In recognition of the scale of the issue, the government introduced the Modern Slavery Act in 2015. This places a wide range of legal duties on organisations to eliminate slavery from their operations and supply chains. With our Tackling Modern Slavery online training course, you can get everyone up to speed with their legal responsibilities and enable them to take a positive role in putting a stop to slavery.

Modern Slavery Training FAQs

It’s an abhorrent truth, but slavery still exists today – and in every country in the world. For example, the British government estimate that as many as 13,000 people are in modern slavery in the UK right now (and as many as 20.9M people worldwide); many are trafficked abroad after living in poverty in other countries and are forced to work for free to pay back impossible debts.

The Modern Slavery Act is designed to prevent slavery in the UK and became law on March 26th 2015. The Act covers England and Wales and combines previous slavery and trafficking laws.

There are many different types of modern slavery, and unfortunately many of these go unnoticed because they are hidden in the supply chains of vendors and manufacturers that organisations like yours could unknowingly come into contact with regularly. Forms of exploitation include forced labour, forced marriage, sex trafficking, child slavery, bonded labour and forced organ removal – but with effective modern slavery training employees can learn what the tell-tale signs of modern slavery are and who to alert if they think modern slavery might be taking place.

The Modern Slavery Act (2015) introduced two new civil orders concerning forced labour, servitude, and exploitation. These orders enabled courts to place restrictions on those convicted (or to-be convicted) of Modern Slavery offences. Additionally, the Act called for increased transparency in the supply chains of larger organisations (those with an annual turnover of £36m or more) and requires these organisations to disclose what steps they have taken to ensure slavery and human trafficking are not taking place within their supply chain. This legislation also applies to organisations overseas so long as they wish to supply goods or services into the UK.

Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act, which requires organisations to release an annual transparency statement, applies to larger organisations with a turnover of £36m or more (including subsidiaries). In their statement, organisations must identify the steps they are currently taking to prevent modern slavery from happening within their organisation and/or supply chain. If no steps are being taken, this should also be declared publicly.

The Modern Slavery Act states that:

Our modern slavery training is delivered in three engaging courses:

Identifying Modern Slavery in the Supply Chain will empower your employees to be able to spot ‘red flags’ and identify instances of modern slavery in the supply chain and act on them accordingly. Companies risk a great deal of reputational damage should instances of modern slavery be discovered in their supply chain. Therefore prevention is key and this course will help employees gather relevant information about your suppliers and allow you to assess whether they are high, medium or low risk.

Modern Slavery and Transparency Statements documents the necessary steps and legislation behind Section 54 of the UK Modern Slavery Act, which requires larger organisations to release an annual statement detailing the steps they have taken to prevent modern slavery in their operations.

What is Modern Slavery? is an introductory microlearning course, designed to give a short, sharp overview of what modern slavery is, what it means for your organisation and how your organisation can ensure compliance. Microlearning is an effective way of delivering modern slavery training as it is recognised to improve learner engagement, as the microlearning courses typically last for 5 minutes so even the least attentive learner can focus for the duration of the course. Microlearning is highly engaging, concise, specifically focused learning which maximises the level of knowledge that learners retain.

All our modern slavery training courses are available off-the-shelf for ease of use; we can also work with your subject experts to tailor the approach and information to suit your organisation’s requirements. Using the Adapt Authoring Tool you can even modify our courses yourself.
