Statement
This statement has been published in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
It sets out the steps TeacherActive Limited (“TeacherActive”) has taken to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains.
This statement is made as part of TeacherActive’s commitment to eliminating the exploitation of people under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the Act).

About us
TeacherActive is a multi-award-winning national recruitment business, that supplies recruitment services within the education sector.
We are committed to eliminating modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and similar human rights abuses.
We are proud of our strength in compliance, and we are a “trade body” member of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (“REC”).

Policies
Our Modern Slavery Policy reflects our commitment to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our business and supply chains. The Policy sets out our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking. Every member of staff is expected to comply with the policy which includes raising any concerns and using the appropriate reporting channels at the earliest possible stage.

We also operate a Whistleblowing Policy that encourages all staff to report any wrongdoing.
All reports will be investigated and escalation to our board of directors will occur where appropriate.
All our policies are available to our employees via our internal intranet.

Supplier Code of Conduct
We expect our suppliers to agree and adhere to our ethical standards for conducting business. These standards require suppliers to:

  • not hold any person in slavery or servitude or requiring a person to perform any form of forced or compulsory labour;
  • not arrange or facilitate the trafficking of any persons;
  • not purchase materials or services from companies who use involuntary labour or participate in human trafficking;
  • treat and reward employees equally on the basis of the characteristics of their work and the intensity of their effort;
  • provide safe, hygienic, and healthy working environments for their employees;
  • provide, as a minimum, rates of pay at the national minimum wage; and
  • act in accordance with applicable national and regional laws and regulations at all times

Training
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff where relevant.

Due Diligence
We have in place systems to:

  • identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains;
  • audit existing and prospective suppliers;
  • mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains; and
  • protect whistle blowers.

Compliance
We have HR and Legal teams dedicated to ensuring compliance with law, policy and process throughout our business. We review our policies and procedures on a regular basis to ensure ongoing compliance.
