Walsall Councils Traded DPO Service has over the past year implemented direct awareness training to school-based staff. As part of this there have been a number of requests to provide additional training for school governors.
Therefore, as part of our duties to ensure that data sharing and processing is undertaken appropriately, the data protection team have decided to host a free to attend event that supports all schools and governors in understanding their duties and responsibilities.
We fully understand that it may not always be possible to ensure all staff and governors receive appropriate Data Protection training throughout the year and we hope that this event will enable you to share awareness and lessons learned within your own schools and governing bodies in support of these requirements.
Unfortunately due to the amount of schools in the borough we can only accept attendance from a maximum of two persons per school which should enable you to send your Head Teacher and Data Protection Link Governor or appropriate representative to this one-off event.
