Training is important for raising awareness and understanding the importance of modern slavery issues. It helps employees and suppliers identify the risks of modern slavery, and how to address such risks if they find them. Training can be targeted at specific groups of employees, especially those working in procurement, those who deal with supply chains or recruitment, or are in leadership positions. The training can be in any form (face-to-face or online) but should explicitly address modern slavery.
For further information on training please refer to the Home Office Guidance on pp. 37.
Does the company provide training specifically to address modern slavery and human trafficking? This training can take place as a standalone course on modern slavery, or be embedded in a wider training programme on supply chains or human rights. It can cover many different groups- procurement specialists, and those who work in recruitment or in leadership positions.
