Data Protection e-Learning for Schools, Academies and Colleges

Within a school, there are all sorts of job roles that utilise personal data for a variety of reasons. Some staff will be responsible for ensuring they simply use it responsibly, others will be making significant decisions about what data is used, how it is processed and stored and who it is shared with and how.

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.
