The Level 1 Award in Workers’ Rights and Labour Exploitation has already become a key part of the learning provision at many Centres and training providers across the UK, educating learners from all backgrounds on their rights in the workplace and the signs of labour exploitation.

So, we are hosting an online event to give you the chance to find out more about this important qualification. This event is free for all Skills and Education Group Awards and BIIAB Centres, so you won't want to miss it!

You will have the opportunity to hear the following input from a variety of guest speakers:

  • Frank Hanson (Head of Prevention and Partnerships, Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA)) will give an insight into the problem of labour abuse and the role of the GLAA in investigating this.
  • Kaley Boothby (Teaching and Learning Coach, Boston College) will share Boston College’s experience of delivering the qualification to young people on study programmes and the lessons they learned from this.
  • Jillian Simpson (Senior Area Education Manager, WEA) will give WEA’s perspective on delivering the qualification to adults from a variety of backgrounds, including individuals for whom English is not their first language.
  • Darren Weir (Recovery Connector, Double Impact) will speak about his experience of taking the qualification and the benefits he gained from it.

In addition, you will be able to ask our friendly Relationship Managers any questions you may have about the qualification, and find out the next steps if you would be interested in delivering it at your organisation.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
