The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming in to force at the end of May 2018. The new regulation (along with the current draft Data Protection Bill) requires providers to make significant changes to the ways in which they gather, manage and use personal data with considerable fines for the most serious non-compliance (up to €20 million or 4% of turnover, whichever is greater).

It’s not just the fines, but also the other reputational consequences of associated with breach. However, the new laws provide a fantastic opportunity to develop a clear data strategy.

It is important to note that all organisations will have to prepare for GDPR differently. Having considered the questions and problems posed by providers, Shoosmiths and PublicCo have developed a one-day workshop tailored specifically to learning providers.

The workshop will provide delegates with an opportunity to gain specific and developed solutions to their compliance challenges, exploring the challenges associated with learner data and ESFA data agreements. Practical examples will also give delegates experience approaching some of the most immediate challenges GDPR raises and will provide energy and clarity to the topic in hand.

Our workshop will cover:

  • The new GDPR requirements and the key differences with current data protection for learning providers
  • The core principles and organisational change needed for understanding and delivery, again tailored to the environment and structure of training providers
    - GDPR and the ILR – what’s in and out the scope of the Department for Education’s role as a controller for learner data, and what that means for providers
    - GDPR impact on HR and Employment matter - A practical assessment of your employment contracts and policies changes which will need to be made
    - Assessing compliance – Applying a sector based tool to prepare organisations for readiness and ongoing compliance
  • Implementation – how to get ready for GDPR
