Adequate data protection training is an essential part of a school’s journey to data protection compliance.

The training course includes role-based scenarios which typically highlight common data breaches and how to avoid them. The training is informative, interactive and very easy to understand – making the training appropriate for everyone working in education; teachers, teaching assistants, business managers and others who have responsibility for safeguarding data. The full eLearning course takes under 50 minutes to complete and provides clear and easy-to-follow guidance on Data Protection, GDPR, PECR, FOI and SARs. 

Key features of the e-Learning course:   

  • A whole-School approach to achieving compliance.
  • Designed to educate staff to recognise a data breach and respond quickly. 
  • Scenarios for a variety of School-based roles focus on the type of data breach likely to occur in an education setting.  
  • Understand your legal responsibilities under the Data Protection Act.
  • An end of course assessment and certificate of completion.
“The training was very easy to deploy to our users. In addition to this the training was easy to follow, contained all of the information required to appropriately answer the questions and presented in a simple way allowing users of all abilities to successfully complete the training.” - James Lamb, Director of IT Operations, The GORSE Academies Trust
