We assist you to create and maintain policies and procedures to regulate your processing of personal data, setting out how to interact with external bodies, regulatory authorities, data subjects and information seekers.
Providing training for employees
Tailored for schools and MATs, we provide training for your employees on compliance with UK GDPR and other UK data protection laws. Training is provided in two workshops and online via our eLearning platform.
First point of contact with authorities
We will be the first point of contact for supervisory authorities and for individuals whose data is processed.
Managing data requests
We will help manage responses to subject access requests and freedom of information requests. This includes overseeing the data collection process, as carried out by your employees under our direction, drafting correspondence with the data subjects and regulatory authorities.
Conducting an annual audit of your data processes
We conduct an annual audit to provide an assessment of whether your school or MAT is following best practice. The audit includes recommendations, guidance and an overview of compliance.
