Modern Slavery and Trafficking Awareness

Course Description

Are you looking for expert training on modern slavery and human trafficking?

Do you know what it is, how to correctly spot the signs of exploitation, and what to do about it?

Then look no further - Cornwall Council Community Safety Team in conjunction with Resilience & Emergency Management Team are delivering a Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking training session on 25 March 2020 in the Council Chamber, Cornwall Council, County Hall, Treyew Road, Truro, TR1 3AY. (8.45 am for 9:10 am prompt start).

This session will also cover the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) and the Modern Slavery Duty to report.

Duty to notify

Since 1 November 2015, specified public authorities are required to notify the Home Office about any potential victims of modern slavery they encounter in England and Wales. Completing this NRM form is sufficient to satisfy this duty, and this awareness session will guide you through this process.

Intended Audience

This bespoke training is for you if you are a front line worker or professional and may come into contact with slavery in the course of your work. You will develop greater knowledge of the law around modern slavery and human trafficking as well as what it looks like in real life.

You will learn how to spot the signs of exploitation, and what you can do if you come into contact with a potential victim. And you will explore the issues facing individuals who have been trafficked and enslaved and find out what support is available.

Learning Outcomes 

A number of case studies from Cornwall will show the hidden reality of slavery in the county, how action was taken to support the victims and what legislative tools are available to deal with the perpetrators.
