Why is this training programme relevant?

This follow-on course enables DPOs to continue with a network of support and maintain up to date knowledge and expertise throughout the academic year, a key requirement of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

What can I expect?

The course is led by education lawyer and GDPR expert Dai Durbridge, who has extensive experience advising schools and trusts on all GDPR issues. To date, the Manchester-based partner has also provided foundation and GDPR update training to more than 400 DPOs in schools and trusts across the country.

The course provides eight two-hour learning sessions and four one-hour Q&A sessions for delegates to have their questions answered and issues discussed to ensure a personalised learning experience.

Key topics include:

  • The Children's Code: ensuring compliance
  • Learning from education breaches
  • SARs deep dive
  • DPIAs masterclass
  • Data and cyber security
  • Data breach practical case study
  • Outstanding GDPR governance
  • Data champions: building and leading your team

As a result of proactively engaging in this training programme, participants will maintain up-to-date knowledge on current data protection best practice, have an improved understanding of complex GDPR issues and be empowered to drive a strong compliance culture across their institution.
