In addition, Education World Ltd has the following policies which incorporate ethical standards for our staff:

2.1 Policy development and review
Education World’s policies are established by our senior leadership team, based on advice from HR professionals, industry best practice and legal advice. We review our policies on a regular basis, or as needed to adapt to changes. 

3. Our Processes for Managing Risk
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 re-auditing a supplier or conducting spot checks.
After due consideration, 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. 
Additionally, we have taken the following steps to minimise the possibility of any problems:
• We reserve the right to conduct spot-checks of the businesses who supply us, in order to investigate any complaints.
• We collaborate with our suppliers in order to improve standards and 
transparency across our supply chain

Only senior members of staff who have undergone appropriate training for assessing modern slavery risks in the supply chain are authorised to sign contracts and establish commercial relationships in any area where we have identified the potential for risk.
• We ensure that all of our suppliers are members of appropriate industry bodies and working groups.
Our staff are encouraged to bring any concerns they have to the attention of management.

4. Our Performance
Based on the potential risks we have identified, we have also established the following key performance indicators, which are regularly assessed by our senior leadership team:
• the percentage of suppliers who sign up to an appropriate code / provide their own modern slavery statements
• the percentage of workers and/or candidates supplied from audited businesses / our preferred supplier list
• the effectiveness of enforcement against suppliers who breach policies
• the amount of time spent on audits, re-audits, spot checks, and related due diligence
• the level of modern slavery training and awareness amongst our staff
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. 

5. Our Training
All of our staff receive training and support that is appropriate to their role. In particular:
• Our leadership team receive detailed training in identifying and resolving concerns around modern slavery and human trafficking.
• Our recruiters, HR personnel, and/or staff involved in our procurement and supply chains undertake training courses that include guidance around modern slavery and human trafficking, as well as other wider human rights issues.
• 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.
As part of this, our staff are encouraged to discuss any concerns that they have. 

Training is refreshed regularly.
