The General Data Protection Regulation 2016 - are you ready?

On Friday 25 May 2018, the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) will be replaced by the new General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (GDPR). This regulation has a direct impact on all schools and academies, who will have to become formal data controllers.
Despite the changes, Local Authorities will have no formal responsibility to assist schools to meet requirements.

At EES for Schools, we recognise the uncertainty GDPR presents and have been working to formulate services that help schools with compliance, auditing, training, advice, support and the appointment of Data Protection Officers.

The Information Governance team will be running briefing sessions for governors, headteachers and school business managers to find out what GDPR will mean for you and your school, what action needs to be taken and what support we can offer.

Dates and Venues:

Monday 8 May - Stanway Federation Learning Centre, Colchester

Monday 15 May - Latton Bush Centre, Harlow

Friday 19 May - Wickford Collaborative Learning Centre (CLC)

Cost: £35 per attendee

Please click on one of the above locations or call the booking team on 03330 139834 to book your space.
