Course Introduction

Modern slavery is the illegal exploitation of people for personal or commercial gain. Victims are trapped in servitude, which they were deceived or coerced into, and cannot leave.

There are victims of modern slavery and human trafficking across the UK and their plight often goes by unnoticed or with people simply not appreciating that this could be happening. There is no typical victim of slavery. Victims can be men, women and children of all ages, and cut across the population. But they are most often the most vulnerable in society.

In order to combat modern slavery, the Modern Slavery Act came into force in 2015. Its aim is to combat slavery while consolidating existing laws.

Help combat modern slavery by knowing what to spot and how to support victims

This Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking e-learning course aims to provide learners with an awareness of modern slavery and the extent of its prevalence in the UK. Learners will learn how to recognise the signs that someone might be a victim and what they can do to help.

Learners will also be provided with an understanding of the Modern Slavery Act, what it sets out to achieve and how they can ensure they comply with it.

A strong focus is given to the Transparency in Supply Chains clause, with learners being given guidance on how victims can be exploited within a supply chain.

A survey by the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) shows that only 45 per cent of organisations have provided any training to their staff to help them spot modern slavery, while just 42 per cent have mapped their supply chains to better understand their risks.
