About the Course

Course Duration: 28 mins (approx.)

Senior leaders should be sufficiently aware of the content of GDPR and the Data Protection Act in order to ensure schools have the right things in place to be compliant. As per the Data Protection Act 2018, it is your legal duty to protect the personal data of your students, staff, and visitors. Any establishment that collects personal data (e.g. names, addresses, dates of births, etc) has a legal responsibility to ensure that information is gathered, processed, and stored securely. If your school is found to breach GDPR rules, you may face a hefty fine and a visit from the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Our essential CPD course in data protection provides you with the core content you need to ensure you are complying with your legal responsibilities in protecting personal data. Delivered in high-quality video CPD format that has been skilfully organised for busy workloads and is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere, our training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. 

Delivered by retired police officer and associate lecturer, Dr. Kai Adegbembo, this course has been divided into six easy-to-digest modules. The course consists of learning through video modules, completion of tasks, further reading and viewing external resources. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives from the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
