NPTC Group of Colleges (the Group) is committed to meeting the aims of the Modern Slavery Act 2015
We strongly oppose slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and any part of our business. To be trusted to do the right thing is one of our core values. We would never knowingly engage with suppliers or contractors involved in slavery or human trafficking.
Our Anti-slavery and Human Trafficking Policy sets out the Group’s commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in our supply chain arrangements, and the safeguards we have implemented to require that our suppliers and contractors comply with the Modern Slavery Act.
As part of our procurement process any potential contractor or supplier will be required to confirm that they comply with the Modern Slavery Act and, if appointed, we require that they flow down the requirements we place on them to any subcontractors they use to provide their services to the Group. Our terms and conditions will include contractual provisions relating to compliance with the Modern Slavery Act. We will implement these new provisions in all new agreements, upon renewal of existing agreements and upon issue of purchase orders.
Our HR department maintains recruitment policies to protect against slavery and /or human trafficking in our own operations.
