About the course
Duration: 32 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 and contains links to further learning and resources with an assessment at the end to help you evidence your compliance.
This course has been designed in line with the following policies:
Module 1: Roles and responsibilities as senior leaders
Module 1 will cover the responsibilities of senior leaders regarding data protection. You will learn of which legalities and frameworks you must be aware.
Module 2: Defining data protection
Module 2 will teach you what we mean by data protection. It will focus on the roles that data protection plays in your school as well as the rights of the subjects.
Module 3: Accountability
Module 3 will focus on the data protection officer (DPO), senior information risk owner (SIRO), and the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and what their roles are.
Module 4: Information loss and data breaches
Module 4 will inform you about the various types of information breaches as well as how to appropriately respond to one. It will cover the relevant actions and reporting mechanisms by which you must abide.
Module 5: Subject access requests
Module 5 will teach you about subject access requests (SARs) and how to appropriately respond to one. You will also learn best practices for handling SARs and why they may be beneficial to your school.
Module 6: Managing the process
Module 6 incorporates the Data Protection: Toolkit for Schools guidance from the Department for Education and demonstrates how it can be used to help you develop a successful data protection process.
The ultimate responsibility and accountability for data protection compliance sits with governors and trustees. They should have specific knowledge of data protection relevant to their role to ensure compliance with legislation and the ability to respond to any changes, working closely with the Data Protection Officer (DPO). If your school is found to breach GDPR rules, you may face a hefty fine and a visit from the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Data influencers work with data on a daily basis and either create, store, enter, or decide when data will be processed. In addition to general awareness, you should have an additional level of training specific to your role in processing and handling data. As per the Data Protection Act 2018, it is your legal duty to protect the personal data of your students, staff, and visitors. If your school is found to breach GDPR rules, you may face a hefty fine and a visit from the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Domestic abuse is a child protection issue that schools must be prepared for. All children can witness and be adversely affected by domestic abuse in the context of their home life where domestic abuse occurs between family members. Exposure to domestic abuse and/or violence can have a serious, long lasting emotional and psychological impact on children.
