Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking
This course has been developed in response to a growing need to recognise and understand how vulnerable individuals are exploited for sex, labour, and financial benefit to the exploiter and other criminal purposes. The demand for the course has arisen from new statutory duties placed on public authorities to identify and refer cases of human trafficking and modern slavery. The trainer is a qualified lawyer and a serving police officer currently engaged in the management of safeguarding investigations. He has provided training on safeguarding locally and nationally to a wide range of organisations and has also worked in USA carrying out research in domestic abuse and effective interventions.
The course provides an overview of the new legislation and national guidance on modern slavery and human trafficking. The training includes how to identify human trafficking, sexual exploitation, domestic servitude and the powers available to investigators. It will also cover the role and responsibilities of First Responders making referrals to the Nation Referral Mechanism
