Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Training

There is significant concern that the COVID -19 pandemic will have exacerbated the threat from modern slavery and human trafficking, with existing victims less visible due to the ongoing closure of some businesses and others at greater risk of becoming victims as their economic circumstances become more precarious as a result of the impact of COVID-19.

To help councils and other organisations which are legally responsible for identifying and referring victims, the Home Office has developed a new training module for first responders. The 45-minute programme can be accessed online, by clicking this link :

This does not replace our existing e-learning programme, which is used for training all staff, but it is aimed at adding further support over the Covid period.

The Home Office has produced a new E-learning module focussed on child victims of modern slavery which was launched in July this year. This builds on the First Responder training developed by the Home Office in 2020.  

The new module aims to further develop practitioners’ understanding of modern slavery from a child safeguarding perspective. Both E-learning modules are hosted on the Modern Slavery and Organised Immigration Crime Unit’s (MSOICU) website.  

We strongly encourage all First Responders and frontline professionals who work with children to take these training modules. Each module takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and there is an accompanying workbook to help consolidate the user’s learning. 

The new child-focussed module can be found here.
The original First Responder module can be found 

Safeguarding Children and Adults at Risk E-learning module.
In this e-learning module you will explore what safeguarding means in relation to children and adults at risk. You will also learn about relevant legislation and the way we deal with safeguarding within North Tyneside and how you can contribute to this.
Please allow 20 minutes to complete this module.

Safeguarding Children Training Audit Tool

This safeguarding children training audit tool is for all organisations working with children, young people and families in North Tyneside.  It is designed to support organisations to review their safeguarding children training arrangements, and to provide support and information to help address any gaps identified in their training programme.

When you have completed the audit, you should keep a copy so that you have a record of any actions which your organisation needs to do in order to improve safeguarding training practice.

The audit provides assurance to NTSCP that organisations have appropriate training in place, which is part of the Board’s responsibility to monitor the effectiveness of single agency training. We understand that in completing and returning the audit, that you are giving permission to share the information with NTSCP so that they can carry out their duty to monitor safeguarding arrangements across North Tyneside.

If you require further support or information from NTSCP, including on appropriate training available to your organisation, this can also be found our website at
