Modern slavery and human trafficking are, sadly, an ever-growing global issue that does not just affect developing countries but Europe, North America and the UK. With over 1746 cases reported in the UK in one year alone (2013), the challenge of countering modern slavery is becoming increasingly urgent.

To combat this issue, UK legislation has come into force to ensure that no UK organisations with a turnover in excess of £36 million will unwittingly use slave labour in their supply chains.

The new law includes British universities who, like their commercial counterparts, must publish an annual slavery and human trafficking statement that includes a report on steps taken in the previous financial year to ensure that no human rights violations have taken place in the supply chain.

Easy to implement & customise

This Modern Slavery Act e-learning course comes with Marshall LMS, which allows you to manage all your e-learning and track completed training.

Our in-house developers can quickly & effectively adapt this course to your sector and organisation, giving you the option to add your own graphics, photos & video, and amend content to include your policies, procedures and key areas.

At Marshall E-learning were totally focused on creating content thats exactly right for your learners. Thats why weve built our business around customising our existing courses to match the needs of specific organisations. And if something completely originals required, well make a bespoke course for you from scratch.

When we do this, our approach is guided by a few key principles.

Organisational Need
Why do you need to provide learning for your users – specifically? Is there a compliance need, a requirement to raise performance – or generate positive outcomes for external stakeholders? We prioritise making this clear as the first step in all of our projects.

Learner Centric
Who are your learners? What are their preferred learning styles? What do they know already? How confident are they with using technology? Well put these questions to you, and base our approach around the picture we build up.

Learning Outcomes
We use these to decide what every screen in every course we make is intended to achieve. What is it – exactly – that learners need to explain, describe, distinguish or list? Defining these up-front keeps every project on course as we move from initial proposal, through to storyboarding and then development.

Page-turning e-learning just doesnt work. All of our courses are highly interactive, making extensive use of scenarios in particular. Rich media is used as appropriate, from audio-visual resources through to animations and bespoke graphics.

Respect for Learners
Treating learners as adults is vital to us. People dont learn well if they feel theyre being patronised, and we aim to let users manage their own learning experience. We do this by writing our courses with an honest, direct tone, and giving learners choices in the form of additional learning resources and open navigational features.

Whats in it for me? is a question that all of our learners should be able to answer.
