Modern slavery and Human Trafficking are horrendous crimes and hidden in plain sight all around us. As the number of investigations increase, so does the demand for professional interpreters and this brand new workshop will help interpreters to build knowledge and confidence
Since legislation introduced in 2015, the number of cases of modern slavery and human trafficking being investigated is increasing with many vulnerable victims being unable to speak English and requiring the expertise of a professional interpreter.
This workshop will explain the legislation and will focus on the unique and unusual terminology that the offences present. It will explore the various parts of the investigation process that interpreters may become involved in and what is expected of them to enable them to fulfill their role confidentially and effectively.
This practical workshop will also include a demonstration of a modern slavery victim being visually recorded during their interview, and what interpreters can do to ensure that this withstands subsequent court scrutiny. The day concludes with an interactive case feed packed full of lessons from real life modern slavery offences involving interpreters.
The Zakon team has vast experience in investigating these crimes and runs criminal investigation skills training for the Gangmaster Labour and Abuse Authority who investigate these offences and for the first time, this knowledge is available to share more widely.
Whilst aimed at interpreters, this day is beneficial to many professional groups or individuals that may wish to raise their knowledge and awareness.
The day offers outstanding value at just £120, fully inclusive of VAT, food, beverages, car parking, all materials and certificate of attendance.
