Qualification for DPOs/DP Leads in Education

Data Protection Officers (DPOs) or data protection (DP) Leads working in the UK’s complicated school educational sector deserve specialist training and practical support from well-known DP experts.

Consequently, Tenjin has joined forces with Amberhawk to produce a new three-day, certified, on-line training course exclusively for hard-pressed DP practitioners in these educational establishments.

Our Certified Data Protection Practitioner in Education combines our deep practical understanding of how DP law applies in an educational context with the power of certification.  This allows your professionals to obtain the necessary knowledge, with the required rigour, from expert tutors.

We expect your chosen DP staff become more capable and confident that their newly found skills have a solid foundation in law and practice.  Simultaneously, your organisation is well positioned to achieve, maintain and demonstrate compliance with any DP obligation.

The course deals with both current DP law and the proposed amendments to UK data protection law including the replacement of the DPO with a ”Senior Responsible Individual” who must be a member of your organisation’s senior management.

If these proposed amendments become law, delegates can attend additional “free of charge” update sessions which cover the main changes to your statutory DP obligations.

The course can be attended without sitting the assessment.  The first course is scheduled for March 2024.
