After working with MATs that have been inspected by ICO, it is very clear that ICO is looking for schools to deliver sector-specific role-based training to staff.
Over the summer we worked really hard to develop a brilliant series of role-based training videos and handouts for schools.
The package contains 14 videos, 7 covering general data protection in school and 7 that focus on the types of data breaches that can occur in each role. Each video is school-specific and role-based, and whilst most data protection advice is common across all roles, there are some areas which are quite specific.
Our videos will ensure your staff are aware of their responsibilities and help them quickly identify potential breaches of personal data. Below are the roles covered:
1. In the Classroom
2. School Administrator
3. School Catering Staff
4. Member of SLT
5. Member of staff that visits our school
6. Member of the school premises team
7. As part of school governance
Running a successful role-based training session
We recommend you hold a group training session for members of each role type. Play the videos, then hold a Q&A to encourage staff to share good practice. Use the handouts to prompt staff to properly consider their responsibilities and note actions they are taking to help ensure you are able to comply with the requirements of the data protection laws; they become the evidence you need.
Your larger group training sessions for teaching staff, administrators and technicians, the premises team and catering staff have been prepared for you in the form of fully editable PowerPoint presentations - just add your logo! These comprehensive training sessions include an overview of the requirements of data protection laws, the videos embedded in the presentation and accompanying sheets to prompt Q&A. Staff will be encouraged to share good practice and learn from others. Not only do the handouts remind staff to consider their responsibilities and note actions - they become the evidence you need to comply with the data protection laws.
Our role-based training materials will be updated annually to keep staff engaged ensuring they have the knowledge and confidence to handle personal data safely and be assured they are doing everything they can to protect the children in their care.

“Role-based training has been really useful. I have been able to allow line managers to take responsibility for their departments GDPR training which has made it better. Rather than a huge group watching a video where people can think it’s not relevant for them, watching a role-based video in small groups or individually has been really well-received.” Mandy, Academy HR Manager
