Why is this training programme relevant?

Our Data Protection Officer (DPO) continuous development programme provides DPOs with all they need to keep their knowledge up to date 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 over 400 DPOs in schools and trusts across the country.

Delivered remotely in two-hour modules via video conferencing software, the interactive and engaging course will cover:

  • Managing subject access requests and redaction
  • Using CCTV compliantly and dealing with requests for footage
  • Revisiting lawful processing
  • Obtaining, recording and managing consent including for biometric data
  • Data minimisation - retention and destruction of personal data, retaining emails

  • Sharing data safely and securely
  • Learning from recent data breaches and the official Information Commissioners Office advice

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