Free (£30.00 non-members)

At our summer meeting of this popular network for staff with safeguarding responsibilities, we are pleased to welcome Frank Hanson, Head of Prevention and Partnerships, Gangmasters & Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA), to provide an input on identifying and reporting signs of labour exploitation. Frank will also provide some background on the work of the GLAA and share the findings from the pilot Level 1 Award in Workers’ Rights and Labour Exploitation that has been developed in conjunction with the GLAA and Skills and Education Group Awards.

Kaley Boothby (Advanced Practitioner, Boston College) will describe the experience of delivering this pilot qualification which offers learners a crash course in understanding their rights as an employee. Previously involving students in the creation of tutorial resources to raise awareness of labour exploitation, Kaley will outline continuing work at Boston College on this theme and the benefits of including the qualification as part of their curriculum.

Facilitated by Karen Plowman (Head of Professional Development) and Alison Scott (Lead Professional Development Advisor), this online session utilising Zoom will enable networking and collaboration among participants in relation to safeguarding.

In addition, as a reminder of what we can do to help identify and support the victims of organised crime, Alison will share some notes and information gathered during her attendance at a March webinar on ‘Tackling County Lines, a proactive safeguarding approach’.
