What People Say About Us

"At the core of the Leeds e-Learning module is the key message that everyone who works with or for the organisation has responsibility for ensuring data is collected, stored and handled appropriately.

Complex issues are tackled expertly and in a work-related context which is both refreshing and engaging for users who don't need to be expert in information law and practice but who do need to be aware of the employers' legal obligations…".
