About this course

Again, another first of its kind in the UK. Our Executive Directors course has been specifically written to allow those individuals on Executive Boards to have a detailed understanding of their roles and responsibilities under the UK Data Protection Act 2018 (UK DPA) and EU General Data Protection (GDPR). As custodians of the business it is vital that Board members are aware of the impacts this legislation has directly on them.

Who Should Take This Course?

We appreciate that the role of any Executive Board member is a busy one, and therefore have designed this course to provide the essential knowledge that an Executive Director should have relating to the UK DPA and GDPR. It is designed with Board responsibilities in mind and therefore is a must for Directors of businesses and organisations.

What Are Our Key Differentiators?

We can help you deliver courses that are engaging, informative, and test the learners’ knowledge and understanding. All our courses are designed and regularly updated by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), who are familiar with recognised best practices and the associated Legal and Regulatory requirements.

Your teams will be trained on your company’s Academy Learning Management System (LMS).

We can align with your brand guidelines, match logos, colour schemes and site URL. Combined with engaging content learners will get a feel for your company culture from the very start.

The LMS enables you to easily assign courses and training schedules to individuals and teams. Send reminders to those who have not started or finished training and see who has passed or failed courses.

High quality video content ensures learners are more engaged. A simplified layout allows for all staff to quickly take any course. If they are stuck, they can click the help button and our 24/7 support team will help them on their way. You can even add additional classroom notes for those who want more info.

Staff can take the course on a tablet, phone, or laptop providing for a learning strategy designed for the modern workplace. The player allows employees to resume the course where they last left it, so they can work at their own pace on any device.

At the simplest level we build a question bank from the content and test staff knowledge.

Your Academy will automatically provide company branded and accredited certificates to your staff on completion of training.

We provide updates via our quarterly News Bulletins, which help to ensure that content remains relevant; which in-turn helps your staff upskill and remain abreast of emerging threats, industry developments etc.
