Welcome to the GLA Academy - working in partnership with the University of Derby’s International Policing and Justice Institute.
Our first training course is a Certificate in Professional Development: Investigating Modern Slavery
A programme developed in partnership with the University of Derby to give individuals the knowledge, skills and confidence to identify labour exploitation.
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 (and equivalent legislation in Scotland and Northern Ireland) has increased awareness of labour exploitation and drawn together various strands of legislation to ensure that the UK has a focussed approach to deal with all forms of slavery. The GLA has been heavily involved in the development of the legislation, in particular using its expertise in the area of labour exploitation. The Modern Slavery Act requires business to consider its approach to tackling this abhorrent crime.
But we and our law enforcement partners cannot tackle labour exploitation alone. We continue to work alongside businesses to raise awareness and offer support to identify and tackle labour exploitation. This support includes providing a training programme to enable businesses to identify labour exploitation, non-compliance with the GLA Licensing Standards, act as a deterrent to those who seek to exploit workers and support the transparency in the supply chain requirements placed upon business from 1 November 2015. Importantly, it will also ensure that any business which identifies issues of labour exploitation knows when and how to report concerns.
The programme is based upon the training received by GLA Inspectors and uses real life examples of GLA inspections. It utilises the expertise of the University of Derby’s International Policing and Justice Institute who are recognised as leaders in the area of investigative interviewing and this programme is being accredited by the University. The programme does not seek to place the responsibility for tackling the most serious forms of exploitation on individuals within a business. It seeks to support them through increased knowledge and awareness with the emphasis that if Modern Slavery or non-compliance is identified it should be reported immediately to the relevant authorities.
