Modern Slavery training:

Basic Awareness

Duration: One day

Having a basic level of Modern Slavery awareness and an understanding of the related issues is the first stage in tackling the problem in the UK. Employers and organisations have a responsibility to ensure that they are equipping their staff with the understanding and information they need.

Course background

Following the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act in 2015 certain commercial organisations and companies are also obliged to publish a slavery and human trafficking statement for each financial year. This statement must include information on how they have addressed the provision of relevant training for their staff.

Our Modern Slavery courses have been designed and created by those with experience and expertise in this area including our Head of Investigations, Chris Davies who is one of the country’s leading experts in the field.

Who is it for?

Our Modern Slavery awareness training is ideal for any person who may come into contact with a victim or offender of Modern Slavery during their work. The course is applicable to both front line staff and management as well as those who have a responsibility for influencing policy and procedures within their organisation.

This one day course aims to provide those, who may come into contact with any aspect of Modern Slavery, with the knowledge and understanding required to identify, recognise and act upon situations they suspect may be subject to Modern Slavery or human trafficking.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the current situation in the UK and be aware of the changes to the law.
  • To understand what Modern Slavery is and to recognise the signs and behaviours.
  • To understand the obligations placed upon organisations and individuals.
  • To identify what to do, who to tell and what to record.
  • To identify the Support Services and what they can offer.
  • To be provided with an overview of the responsibilities placed upon partner agencies and the processes involved.

"The managers of Exchequer Solutions attended a Modern Slavery course recently provided by Peel Solutions. As a company which is at the forefront of compliance, we took this step to enhance our knowledge and to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The course was interesting, informative and excellently delivered by the trainer Chris Davis. For any companies who are interested in the course as part of their commitment to compliance, I would strongly recommend the Peel Solutions offering."
