Amberhawk is delighted to offer the Shelagh Gaskill Bursary which provides £350 towards the cost of Practitioner training in data protection. Both Sue and Chris knew Shelagh for many years and worked with her for far too few of them.
The Bursary has been named after Shelagh Gaskill in recognition of the fact that she headed the Pinsent Masons’ Information Law team for several years when Sue and Chris were members, and that she was one of the leading lights in data protection in the UK for over two decades.
The Bursary is worth £350 for delegates attending the 5 day Data Protection Course leading to the BCS qualification. The Bursary is available to staff working for charities, hospices, housing associations and voluntary groups and is available for any of our public courses in the UK.
All we ask in return, is that we add your logo to our collection in Shelagh’s memory.
The Bursary is intended to help and support help charities, hospices, housing associations, voluntary and community organisations which have some very difficult data protection issues to resolve but which have limited resource available to fund the cost of training employees in information law. The Bursary marks Shelagh’s significant contribution to this area of law and her role in championing the rights of individuals. Amberhawk also hopes that the Bursary will help successful applicants to apply their learning and new skills for the benefit of the wider community.
