Training for Raising Awareness and Understanding about the Trafficking of Humans in Europe

Human Trafficking is a European and global crime and yet few EU VET training courses exist to tackle this subject for frontline workers. EU Directive 2011/36/EU states that EU countries should provide training in raising awareness of HT for workers in social care sectors and sectors most likely to meet potential victims/perpetrators. The TRUTH project aimed to:• Train frontline staff (social care) in a unique and tailored blended learning package outlining and raising awareness of HT in EU• Put policy into VET training practice by developing the first pan-European online course to raise awareness amongst workers in Social Care in Europe • Support European organisations with their legal requirements of providing training for frontline workers in HT awareness Our objectives were:• To transfer and adapt an e-course in the awareness of HT from UK to partner countries of RO, EL, IT to workers in social care organisations where they are dealing with people who could be vulnerable/victims of HT • To pilot the adapted version of 'Human Trafficking Awareness' with relevant target group members in partner countries (UK,RO,EL,IT) using blended methodology• To develop a European network of VET professionals with interest in developing HT VET courses (especially e learning VET professionals)• To develop an online European TRUTH Academy for VET Trainers and Professionals Working to Raise Awareness of Human Trafficking among workers and the community.These objectives have all been delivered and TRUTH's outcomes and impacts include:- A new course adapted to country-specific HT needs; - 235 workers who took part in piloting have increased their competences and skills in the area of understanding HT issues; - VET trainers have increased their skills and knowledge in HT issues; - VET e learning professionals have increased their skills and competences for developing e-learning content and using European online networks to share learning experiences.
