Event Details

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) awareness course for Schools 

An overview of the new data protection law (GDPR) and how it will impact schools.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in May 2018. It will replace the current Data Protection Act 1998.

With the headline of a maximum £17m fine, or 4% of turnover (whichever is greater) there is good reason to be concerned.

Schools hold vast amounts of personal data, there are going to be a number of important changes so it is vital that schools prepare now to be ready.

This 2.5 hour GDPR awareness course is ideal for schools, academies and trusts who need to understand the concepts and terminology of data protection and GDPR, how it will impact schools and what steps schools need to take to become compliant.

Why choose us? 

Our course is delivered by a lead education consultant who has been providing data handling consultancy and training through his roles as a school compliance advisor as well as his voluntary work as a school governor and member of the head teacher performance review panel.

In addition, there will also be a panel consisting of a practicing lawyer, who specialises in data protection/GDPR and an IT expert. The Q&A at the end of the session will allow discussion of concerns you may have.

This combination is unique in the training market and provides added value. 

Who should attend?

Head teachers, deputy heads, senior management, admin staff, governors, proprietors
