About The Course
Although many people consider slavery to be something that only exists overseas, modern contemporary slavery is an issue that is happening with increasing frequency closer to home. Current research estimates that tens of thousands of people are in some form of modern slavery in the UK today, with the number of reported incidents growing year on year.
Since the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, every large company is required to publish an annual statement indicating the steps that they have made to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in the business itself, or anywhere in its supply chain. As many small organisations form part of the supply chain of these larger companies, it is likely to be equally important for them to demonstrate the same steps and awareness to continue doing business with them.
Our Modern Slavery Awareness course will help all businesses train their staff about the key elements of the Act, and how to help combat this growing issue.
