Training and Advisory
We offer training programs to increase awareness about all forms of modern slavery, the indicators of modern slavery, protections that are available, best practice and referral pathways. We also offer training about the Australian Modern Slavery Act and the supply chain reporting requirements.
We deliver training to frontline service providers, business, law enforcement, community and government, the health care sector, not for profits, students and educators.
For many years we have provided access to free training to all sectors of the community. In addition to our free training, we have developed new training programs with a registration fee.
As a not-for-profit organisation, Anti-Slavery Australia uses all proceeds from our training registration fees to enable us to provide free legal and migration services to victims of modern slavery in Australia.

A Practical Guide to the Modern Slavery Act Elearning Course
Anti-Slavery Australia has developed a new online elearning course focused on the Australian modern slavery reporting requirements. The course is specifically designed to provide practical guidance on the supply chain reporting requirements set out in Australia’s Modern Slavery Act.
Building on our knowledge of the Australian Modern Slavery Act and our work with victims of modern slavery, this course is a nationally leading resource for organisations addressing modern slavery in their operations and supply chains. It will also be of interest to individuals seeking Continuing Professional Development.
The course is 45 minutes in duration. It comprises four modules:
- What is modern slavery?
- Modern slavery in business operations and supply chains
- Australian modern slavery reporting requirements
- Responding to modern slavery in Australia
The course offers practical guidance and includes innovative, interactive activities, case studies and expert interviews with David Cooke (Konica Minolta), Martijn Boersma (co-author of Addressing Modern Slavery), Jennifer Burn (Anti-Slavery Australia) and Kylie Porter (Global Compact Network Australia).
Certificates of completion are available.
Benefits to your organisation:
- Increase your staff and suppliers’ awareness and knowledge about modern slavery and the Australian reporting requirements
- Demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to addressing modern slavery in your Modern Slavery Statement
- Support victims of modern slavery, with course proceeds assisting Anti-Slavery Australia to provide nationwide free legal and migration services to victims of modern slavery in Australia.
This course will be launched in early 2020. For more information, get in touch with us today.
Face-to-Face Training and Webinars
Our training can be customised to meet your organisation’s needs. Our interactive training sessions and webinars help participants to develop their knowledge and competence on modern slavery. These workshops can provide an overview on a number of topics or do a deep dive on particular topics or sectors.
Through case studies and discussion, they encourage embedded learning and build participants’ capacity to respond to modern slavery risks in operations and supply chains.
We have some of Australia’s most respected modern slavery experts as part of our training team, including Professor Paul Redmond (Department of Home Affairs Modern Slavery Expert Advisory Committee Member) and Martijn Boersma (co-author of Addressing Modern Slavery).
By the end of our workshops and webinars participants will:
- understand modern slavery
- understand and know how to apply Australian modern slavery legislation, and other relevant standards and safeguards
- identify modern slavery risks in operations and supply chains
- develop an action plan to address the modern slavery supply chain mandatory criteria

Our training programs are offered in-house, at the UTS campus in Sydney and at other venues across the country.
A Deep Dive into the Modern Slavery Regime
The deep dive seminar follows our foundational seminar and is targeted at professionals responsible for leading their organisation’s response to the Australian modern slavery requirements.
This seminar examines the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of supply chain transparency, with in-depth guidance about how to identify risk in your supply chain, develop a risk analysis for your own organisation, address the seven mandatory criteria in your modern slavery statement, collaborate with business and civil society and respond if a case of modern slavery is identified.
A Practical Guide to the Modern Slavery Regime: Regulation, Risk and Best Practice
This half day seminar provided a framework for those in leadership and reporting roles to begin compliance and due diligence planning for the Australian modern slavery requirements.
The course laid the foundations for: understanding modern slavery; examining the impact of Australian modern slavery legislation on businesses; building policy and procedure architecture to deliver modern slavery statements for organisations or clients; and exploring how best-practice examples can inform your work.
