Modern Day Slavery Policy

This statement is made on behalf of The Skills Network Ltd in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the ‘Act’), and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending July 2016.

The Skills Network is a private training provider supporting educators, employers and learners across the UK, and internationally, by developing and delivering effective and innovative skills training and published educational content.

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern day slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.

Our supply chains include publishing and printing services, IT services, conference and venue suppliers, training providers, consultants and marketing services. We have reviewed the risks that these supply chains can present.

We expect our suppliers and contractors to demonstrate a zero tolerance approach to exploitation. We would not knowingly support or deal with any business involved in slavery or human trafficking. As part of our procurement process, we will only engage with suppliers and contractors who confirm their compliance with the Act.

We will continue to keep our staff informed and raise awareness of how to recognise and respond to indicators of human rights abuses. We will adapt and promote our existing company policies to incorporate modern slavery and human trafficking issues, including our whistleblowing policy which allows employees to report any concerns confidentially.

This policy applies to all those employed by The Skills Network Ltd.
