Modern Slavery: Spotting the signs and what you should do


This course has been expertly created in conjunction with The Modern Slavery Act 2015. If your business needs to comply with the Act or you work with potential victims of modern slavery, this engaging course will teach you the specific indicators that an adult or child may be a victim of modern slavery, and what you need to do next. After completing the course you will understand how to engage with a potential victim, and how to get them appropriate support through the government’s National Referral Mechanism.
