Our Data Champion course is perfect for Line Managers or those with the role of the Data Champion or Data Guardian and who want to understand the practicalities of the data protection law. It is an interactive course and will aid delegates in understanding how to complete some of the tasks dictated by the law such as DPIAs and completing a RoPA.

Delegates are encouraged to ask questions throughout, and case studies are used to aid with learning.  Delegates can share real world experiences with other attendees and discuss issues and ideas to help them within their role moving forwards.

Delegates get a free DPAS set of templates and tools to take back to their organisation to assist them in their role.
