Digital delivery

Running over twelve sessions between October and March, this programme takes your knowledge deeper, keeping you up-to-date and tackling new topics through masterclasses, case studies, practical scenarios and discussion. This follow-on DPO continuous development programme builds on the strong learning platform acquired from the Intermediate DPO Continuous Development Programme and focuses in greater depth on the key issues, supporting you with building your confidence, reducing resource need and limiting or removing the need for external legal spend.

Running over five months, the Advanced course is again led by education GDPR expert lawyer, Dai Durbridge, who will provide you with all you need to stay up-to-date throughout the year.
