Collaboration with the Information Law Practice
I am very pleased to say that I am actively working with Paula Williamson of The Information Law Practice to enable schools to prepare for the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will come into force next year. We will be offering training on the subject, from both a legal and hands-on perspective, and I shall be offering a service next year to act as a Data Protection Officer for schools, which is one of the requirements of the legislation being introduced.
I worked closely with Paula during my time at Birmingham City Council as she has provided a number of training courses for Birmingham schools. She is very knowledgeable on legal matters relating to Data Protection and is a trainer who always make the subject an interesting and thought-provoking topic.
