About the Course

Duration: 44 mins (approx) 

All school staff should acquire the relevant training to equip them with the knowledge and skills to recognise modern slavery. The Home Office advises that “even staff that may only rarely be in situations where they might come across modern slavery can benefit from a basic understanding of what to look for”. With an estimated 8.4 million children in slavery in the world today, schools have a significant part to play in identifying and reporting modern slavery to help combat it.

Our essential CPD course in modern slavery provides you and your staff with the core content you need to ensure you are complying with your duty of care towards children who may be victims of modern slavery. Delivered in high-quality video CPD format that has been skilfully organised for busy workloads and is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere, our training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost effective and most time-efficient manner.

Delivered by international safeguarding expert, Robin Watts, this course has been divided into eight easy-to-digest modules and contains links to further learning, resources, and case studies, with an assessment at the end to help you evidence your compliance.

This course has been designed in line with the following policies:
