Modern Slavery training:

First Responders

Duration: A full day training course

Modern Slavery act training is important for employees in a range of roles and organisations but the significance of adequate training for first responders has never been greater. Those working in the emergency services, the NHS and local authorities are often the individuals who first spot the signs and are responsible for making a referral.

Course background

To put this into context, in 2015 3,266 potential victims of Modern Slavery were identified in the UK and referred to the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) for support. This represents a 40% increase from 2014. Three quarters of all these referrals originated from a first contact to the NHS. This highlights just how important Modern Slavery training is for staff in the NHS and emergency services as well as those working for local authorities and charities.

Our Modern Slavery courses are run by experts with extensive experience in the field including our Head of Investigations Chris Davies an ex-police trainer and one of the country’s leading experts in the field. Our courses are also the only Modern Slavery courses to have been awarded CPD accreditation.
