Modern Slavery is a crime and a violation of human rights but abroad these violations continue to be reported in relation to business.

 

HubPod School is committed to eliminating modern slavery and to ensuring that our staff and any workers we supply directly or indirectly are not subject to behaviour or threats that may amount to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour or similar human rights abuses.

 

This statement is made as part of HubPod School's commitment to eliminating the exploitation of people under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the Act).It summarizes how HubPod School operates, the policies and processes in place to minimize the possibility of any problems, any risks we have identified and how we monitor them, and how we train our staff.

1 Our Business

HubPod School is a limited company operating in the education sector. We hire educators to deliver courses being offered at the school. 

1.1 Who we work with

-All of the hirers that we work with, and all of the work-seekers we provide, are known to and identified by our staff. All of the temporary workers we supply are identified by our staff, and have been met in face to face interviews. Due to COVID-19 these interviews have been carried out online during the financial year 2020/2021. Because we work in the education sector, vetting checks are of the utmost importance and we have very high standards for our background and identity checks.

-Some of our work-seekers are supplied via other businesses, who facilitate providing them to the eventual hiring company.

-The hiring companies that we work with are in the main local authority and independent schools, private nurseries and located throughout Canada and around the world. The educators we supply live around the world.

-We maintain close relationships with suppliers of services and goods not for resale. Where risks are highlighted, or concerns are raised the suppliers are assessed remotely and through face to face or online meetings to ensure they are effectively managing the risk of modern slavery in their businesses.

 

Our Policies

HubPod School’s policies demonstrate the company’s dedication to acting ethically and with integrity. Our policies incorporate ethical standards for our staff with directors and senior management setting the tone from the top. HubPod School wishes to create an open, supportive, and safe working environment where everyone feels able to speak up and voice any concerns they may have. Policies on modern slavery, anti-bribery and whistleblowing are widely available to staff, work seekers and temporary workers through the company’s intranet and policies provided.

Policy development and review

Our Processes for Risk Assessment and Management

In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, we use the following processes with our suppliers:

We review the potential for risk at regular intervals, including the possibility of auditing a supplier or requesting confirmation of policies and process.

We have not identified any significant risks of modern slavery, forced labour, or human trafficking in our supply chain. However, we continue to be alert to the potential for problems.

Our staff are encouraged to bring any concerns they have to the attention of management.

Our Performance

As part of monitoring the performance of HubPod School, and based on the potential risks we have identified, we have also established the following key performance indicators, which are regularly assessed by our board of directors:

-The level of modern slavery training and awareness amongst our staff reports of possible incidents of Modern Slaver.

-There have been no reports of incidents of modern slavery.

-We carefully consider our indicators, in order to ensure that we do not put undue pressure on our suppliers that might increase the potential for risk.

-Our recruiters, HR personnel, and staff involved in our procurement and supply chains undertake training courses that include guidance around modern slavery and human trafficking.

-All of our staff receive awareness-raising information around issues involving modern slavery and human trafficking, so that they can bring any concerns they have to the attention of management.
