Based on model trainings, which were implemented for a variety of different state and non-state actors during the project, a training handbook was developed to sensitize actors who come in contact with persons (potentially) affected by labour trafficking and labour exploitation in Germany.
The designated users of the handbook include multipliers within governmental agencies, trade unions, counseling centers and other organizations who want to sensitize their colleagues or employees for the phenomenon of trafficking for labour exploitation. Beyond this, the handbook shall serve as a guideline and offer templates for persons responsible for continuing education programs in their own institutions or within their work for educational institutes. Many occupational groups come into contact with potentially affected persons through their (volunteer) work or areas of responsibility, and can thus play a decisive role in identifying persons affected by labour trafficking. Lastly, the handbook shall also function as a resource for participants during and after their training.
This training handbook forms the first of its kind for the German-speaking region and was presented at the final conference of the project in June 2012. With this handbook, the BBGM hopes to contribute to a broad sensitization on trafficking for labour exploitation in order to increase the knowledge on its existence while also improving its identification and the support of persons affected.
