GDPR training for schools & school staff


What schools and school staff really need to know


The General Data Protection Regulation came into force on 28th May 2018, and there is a LOT of media coverage about what needs to be done to be compliant.  For most schools, who have operated under the Data Protection Act since 1998, it is NOT a whole new concept, just a development and extension of what you already do.

The aim of this 2-part training is to highlight what’s different in a factual, non-alarmist way, and ensure that everyone in school knows what they should be doing. Part 1 is for all staff who handle any data – so finance, admin, teachers, canteen staff etc., and part 2 is for senior management, leadership & governors and whoever is responsible for data protection.

Both parts last about 45 mins and are accessed online - so you log into our webpage and run the training whenever suits you. As many people as you like from school can access the training, whenever suits each person best. It comes with notes and a copy of the PowerPoint slides.
