(17) The requirements for reporting worst forms of child labour in existing law should be assessed to ensure that government agencies servicing children must report potentially serious cases of child labour, including trafficking, to the appropriate institution. This should be coupled with training of officials in these agencies on what to look out for. Lead institution: DSD. Affected departments: DH, DrSD, DL, DrE, DHA. New policy? Yes. Once off costs: moderate. Recurrent cost: moderate. Time line: To be introduced within two years of adoption of policy. (26) The quality and content of training on the prevention of trafficking, prosecution of traffickers and protecting the rights of victims, including and especially child victims for law enforcement personnel, immigration and customs officials, prosecutors and judges, as well as other relevant officials and non-governmental stakeholders must be improved. Lead institution: DSD. Secondary institutions: DJ, DNP, SAPS, DHA, DrSD (by addressing trafficking and child labour more generally in their training materials programmes). New policy? Yes. Once off cost: moderate. Recurrent cost: moderate. Time line: within two years of adoption of policy. ILO funding: to cover costs within the first two years; and to review basic training material used by SAPS re dealing with Child Victims also address the position of child victims of trafficking. (33) Design and implement minor amendments to existing information management systems to record all steps taken in key areas of a child labour policy (e.g. details regarding child labour inspections, steps taken by departments responsible for social development of children, etc). This system would allow the DL to monitor progress in identifying areas of concern and evaluating targeted programmes or actions AND to track children removed from child labour to ensure that their welfare is attended to adequately. Where such systems do not exist, the first step is the design of such a system. Lead institution: DL (labour steps and overall coordination); DrSD* (welfare steps); DrE (education-related steps); SAPS and NProsAuth* (investigation and prosecution of CL-related crimes; use of children to commit illegal activities); DHA (refugee children and illegal immigrant children). New policy? Yes. Once-off cost of adjustments of current information management systems: moderate. Recurrent cost: minimal. Time line: to be introduced as soon as possible after adoption of policy. ILO funding: to cover once-off cost. (40) The JCPS cluster of directors-generals should take responsibility for dealing with trafficking until explicit legislation on trafficking is promulgated. The cluster includes DJ, DHA, SAPS and SANDF. Lead institution: DJ. Secondary institutions: DHA, SAPS. New policy? Elaboration of existing policy. Once off cost: nil / minimal / moderate / significant. Recurrent cost: SAPS – already funded within SAPS baseline. Time line: within one year of adoption of policy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
