Modern Slavery and Trafficking
Modern slavery and trafficking are two of the most important safeguarding topics for anyone working with vulnerable children or adults. It is crucial that they have an in-depth knowledge of these areas and can spot the signs and symptoms of abuse.
Human trafficking, human exploitation and modern slavery are alarmingly widespread issues in today’s society. Statistics from Unseen show that there was a 35 per cent increase in the number of people identified as trafficking victims in the UK from 2016 to 2017, while 4,586 victims of modern slavery were reported to the Home Office in 2016 alone.
Thousands of children and adults are exploited each year for cheap or unpaid labour, sexual abuse or domestic servitude, which can have a devastating impact on their physical and mental wellbeing.
Why take this course?
It is vital that the perpetrators of these crimes are caught, which is only possible with the support of front-line professionals who are trained in identifying potential signs of exploitation and understand the appropriate course of action to take. That’s what our Trafficking, Exploitation and Modern Slavery e-learning course is designed to educate people about.
A key aim of this training is to provide learners with a strong context so they can easily relate to the situations presented to them within the training. To achieve this, the course uses immersive real-world scenarios and case studies to help professionals apply knowledge into their role.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.

Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
