General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

GDPR changes data privacy requirements, aligning personal data protection with European standards. The aim is to have international consistency around data protection laws and rights and to protect an individual’s personal data across Europe. As schools and academies generate and retain a significant amount of sensitive personal data, it is essential GDPR compliance requirements are met and embedded throughout all existing policies, procedures and practice. Whilst there are similarities with the existing UK Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), this new legal framework updates requirements introduces clear laws with safeguards in place for the growing reliance on digital mediums.

A key element of our safeguarding suite, this course is designed to ensure governance, staff and volunteers in schools and academies have a clear understanding of the changed requirements GDPR introduces, providing not only a sound basis for staff awareness but also the ideal preparation prior to conducting a GDPR audit.
