Data Protection and GDPR CoursesData Protection training

My Approach to Data Protection Training

I make sure that my Data Protection training equips you with the knowledge and skills to comply with UK data protection requirements by explaining these requirements in plain English illustrated with lots of examples, making it easy for you to grasp and apply them in real-world scenarios.  I also encourage questions and discussion, which allows attendees to relate the material to their own context.  The small group sizes also make it easy for attendees to interact with each other and me.

I deliver my full range of Data Protection training online.  Most of the courses are live on Zoom, but some are on-demand.  Download my BOOKING FORM or CONTACT ME to find out more.

All of my course prices are for single bookings.  However, if you would like to organise training for more people I am happy to negotiate discounts for multiple bookings or to quote a price for ‘in-house’ training, which is likely to be cost-effective for four or more people.  

If you would like an informal, no-obligation chat about the Data Protection training I can provide, please book a time on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday and I would be delighted to explore possibilities.

GDPR Practitioner Certificate Courses

Five days of Advanced Data Protection Training

I deliver my Practitioner Courses on 5 days over 3 weeks: usually Tuesday, Thursday, Tuesday, Thursday, Tuesday, followed by a test.

This allows attendees to fit work commitments round the course and gives time for reflecting on, learning and questioning the course materials.

If the dates published below don’t suit your needs please contact me, I may have other course dates available – we try to be flexible!

Some of our courses are certified by the Law Society of Scotland and should be booked directly through them. The next delivery dates for this are in March 2024.  There is a small additional fee for the Law Society certification.

All deliveries of the course are endorsed by Training Qualifications UK (TQUK) and attendees are issued with their certificate, subject to passing the final test.

We are often asked if this course is only suitable in relation to Scottish law.  Simply, data protection is the same across the UK.

We are also asked if this is suitable as data protection officer training.  Realistically a five-day course cannot prepare someone to be a data protection officer.  However, this course should prepare someone to fulfil this role as long as they are able to access additional support when needed.

Course dates for 2024:

  • 5, 7, 12, 14 & 19 March – Law Society of Scotland course
  • 14, 21, 23, 28, 30 May – Cost: £1250
