GDPR Half-day Courses

From the 25th May 2018 The Data Protection Act will be replaced by the GDPR - meaning that the way you manage all data and information in your school will change.


Schools currently generate a wealth of information and this has been governed by the DPA to date. The new GDPR will mean some significant changes to the current regulations - including a significant increase in penalties for non-compliance.


Private schools, academies and free-schools are particularly vulnerable under this new law, but all schools are likely to fall foul of these legal changes unless they are prepared.


Our new half-day courses will cover the following areas :

- what the GDPR is

- time-scales for implementation

- legal duties for compliance

- how it differs from the DPA

- raising awareness

- accountability and data governance

- communicating the changes to parents

- legal grounds related to personal data

- gaining consent for data

- the rights of individuals

- rights of individuals to see records

- personal data breaches (penalties)

- children as ‘vulnerable individuals’

- data transfers to other schools in the UK and abroad

- governors expectations

- costs

- policies and practice


All course attendees will receive :

- an action plan for implementation

- guidance for Governors

- factsheet for parents

- draft policies for use in school

- legal summaries


The courses are priced at £125 per person. The dates and venues are as follows :


Central Birmingham

9th October - PM


Central London
