About this course

If you are responsible in your organisation for working with labour supply chains, then this course is essential. Working with our partners (the Gangmaster Licensing Authority), and through a blended learning approach that involves both distance and face to face learning, you’ll learn techniques that are fundamental to meeting the requirement of the Modern Slavery Act. Specifically, this means you’ll be taught the key skills in gathering reliable information to best ensure that labour supply chains are free from labour exploitation.

Entry requirements

You should have a responsibility within your organisation for examining labour supply chains.

How to apply

Your first stage of enrolling on the course is by registering with the Gangmaster Licensing Authority. We are currently not taking direct enrolments.

Fees and finance

The fee for studying this course is £500.

How you will learn

Initially, you will study at your own pace. You’ll study a set of electronic materials that consist of three videos before proceeding to the two-day face to face course.

How you are assessed

The electronic resources each consist of knowledge checks to ensure that you have understood each of their content. You’ll be further assessed on the two-day face to face course for your demonstrated skills in gathering reliable information.

Finally, after the two day course, you will complete a 1500-word portfolio where you’ll reflect not only on what skills the course has taught you, but also how that will be contextualised in your working lives when meeting the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Who you'll meet

You’ll be taught by a highly experienced teaching team, many of which are former practitioners, and the material will be highly relevant to your day to day practice.
