Modern Slavery Spectrum
You and Your Organisation
Modern Slavery is an on-going issue in the United Kingdom. In 2017, the National Referral Mechanism reported that over 5000 potential victims were submitted, from 116 different nationalities, which is a 35% increase from 2016. In fact, there are more slaves in the world today (40 million) than ever before.
Modern-day slavery is a crime. It includes slavery, human trafficking, forced or compulsory labour and servitude. People subject to slavery have to work against their will and do not have freedom of choice.
Someone is defined as being a victim of slavery if they are:
- forced to work.
- controlled or owned by an individual or organisation that uses physical or mental exploitation.
- dehumanised and are bought or sold as 'property'.
- is constrained or has restricted freedom of movement.
- deceived into servitude.
This online Modern Slavery training course aims to educate users to identify signs of modern-day slavery, to encourage a zero-tolerance policy for it.

Why is Modern Slavery Training Important?
It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.
The Modern Slavery Act 2015, is designed to combat modern-day slavery within the UK.
The Act was created to help law enforcement to punish the perpetrators of such crimes, and also to increase the level of support that victims receive. As well as other factors, the Act seeks to;
- create an independent anti-slavery commissioner.
- require businesses over a certain size to publish any actions taken to ensure there is no modern slavery within their business or supply chain.
- introduce a defence for victims.
- assign an obligation to the Secretary of State to produce statutory guidance for victims.
The Act will "send the strongest possible message to criminals that if you are involved in this disgusting trade in human beings, you will be arrested, you will be prosecuted and you will be locked up." James Brokenshire - Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government
Benefits to Your Business
The course will help you to raise awareness and educate your employees on the signs of slavery, as well as build their confidence to report anything suspicious.
This will allow you to remove any form of slavery in your supply chain, ensuring that your business remains legally compliant. Not only that, but you will also uphold a positive reputation amongst your customers, and most importantly, do your bit to improve the lives of those forced into servitude around the world.
