Data Protection e-Learning for Schools, Academies and Colleges
In the wake of the introduction of GDPR, there’s been a noticeable increase in the number of data breaches reported to the ICO by the education sector.
The increase in self-reported cases does, in some instances, represent a misunderstanding of the new regulation; in part due to a lack of awareness around what is a data breach.
Staff who lack training and general awareness of the principles of GDPR are more likely to unknowingly commit a breach. To date, the ICO has highlighted two specific cases involving the education sector; a University received a £120,000 fine following a “serious” security breach involving the personal data of nearly 20,000 people, and a head teacher received a fine totalling over £1,000 for transferring data between schools.
Leeds City Council’s Data Protection e-Learning course for Schools, Academies and Colleges has been designed to develop a better understanding of good practice and how to be compliant with the laws around managing data. Adequate data protection training is an essential part of your schools' journey to GDPR compliance.
Key features of the Data Protection e-Learning course include:
- A whole-school approach to meeting compliance. Designed to educate staff to recognise a data breach and respond quickly.
- Scenarios for a variety of school-based roles focusing on the type of data breach likely to occur within a school-setting.
- Takes less than 50 mins to complete and includes an end of course assessment.
- Certificate of completion.
Competitively priced from £100 per school, discounts available for lead school or local authority wishing to purchase on behalf of a cluster/family of schools. Standalone or LMS version of the software available.
