Schools have obligations to comply with information gathering and keeping, and may be faced with requests from the Police, parents, social services and pupils themselves.
There are many myths about data and confidentiality which this training course examines and breaks down, making compliance and understanding of the rules so much easier.
By looking at a school’s core duties, responsibilities and exemptions, this course enables schools to become more confident in
- What they have to disclose
- What they may disclose and
- What they must not disclose
This course will aim to protect schools against complaints to the ombudsman, Secretary of State for Education, Information Commissioner and court proceedings.
About our School Data Protection Act Training
The Data Protection Act and Freedom of Information training course is open to delegates to book individual places, which enables you to meet and discuss shared issues with other education professionals. The daily rate is charged at £180 for the first delegate, and additional delegates from the same organisation are charged at £150 per place. This cost includes the documentation pack and refreshments during the day, including lunch.
The Data Protection and Freedom of Information Act course can also be delivered in school, or to a group of schools. Course groups are kept to a maximum of 12 delegates and in school courses cost £600 per day, or £795 plus VAT for up to 15 delegates. For this charge, the school provides the venue and prepares the course documentation. No refreshments are included in this cost.
The above costs are exclusive of VAT.
