Veritau is now offering data protection governance training for MATs

19 February 2024

Veritau is now offering an on-demand training course to multi academy trusts across the country, covering data protection governance.

The course looks in detail at how best to manage data protection risks effectively and ensure compliance. It is aimed at professionals with overall responsibility for data protection risks and governance across a multi-academy trust (MATs).

We appreciate how challenging it can be to manage data protection across a number of schools, particularly if they have legacy processes, systems, and documentation. This training will assist you to establish Trust-level oversight and ensure consistency and efficiency.

The course can be accessed through our partners, North Yorkshire Education Services (NYES).

Topics covered in the session include:

  • ICO registration
  • Reporting structures
  • Key data protection roles
  • Centralised documentation and records
  • Advice on handling key data protection compliance processes, including information requests and data breaches.

To purchase our MAT data protection governance training video, please visit the NYES on-demand training platform and scroll down to find the course.

We can also deliver this training as a live online workshop at an additional cost. If you would like to speak to us about receiving the training as a live session, please contact [email protected].
