Modern Slavery Training
Our Modern Slavery online course will raise awareness and outline the definition of human trafficking and modern slavery with the use of modern-day slavery examples and its common causes. For many people today, the word ‘slavery’ may conjure images of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, where people were stolen from their homes and forced into a life of slavery on plantation farms, cotton picking or domestic slavery.
Spotting the signs of modern slavery is featured in this online course, and looks at how victims can fall into modern slavery such as human trafficking, which is reported to be effecting around 136,000 people in the UK alone. Victims could include people who live down your street or work beside you on a building site. They are often hidden in plain sight and include men, women, and children of all nationalities and ages.
There is no typical victim of modern slavery. However, most victims have one thing in common, which is – vulnerability. We all hold a responsibility within society to ensure that modern slavery is eradicated and that the businesses we manage or work for are taking the relevant steps to tackle and report, which is covered in this online modern slavery training course.
