About The Course

Certificate in Data Protection for Governors and Trustees 2021-22

Duration: 25 minutes (approx)

The ultimate responsibility and accountability for data protection compliance sits with governors and trustees. They should have specific knowledge of data protection relevant to their role to ensure compliance with legislation and the ability to respond to any changes, working closely with the Data Protection Officer (DPO). If your school is found to breach GDPR rules, you may face a hefty fine and a visit from the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Our essential CPD course in data protection provides you with the core content you need to ensure you are complying with your legal responsibilities in protecting personal data. Delivered in high-quality video CPD format that has been skilfully organised for busy workloads and is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere, our training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. 

Delivered by retired police officer and associate lecturer, Dr. Kai Adegbembo, this course has been divided into five easy-to-digest modules and contains links to further learning and resources with an assessment at the end to help you evidence your compliance. 

This course has been designed in line with the following policies:
