Data Protection Training

Comprehensive data protection training for staff, volunteers and trustees

Data protection can be a daunting and complicated subject.  Ensuring all staff, volunteers, trustees and data processors are upholding high standards in data protection compliance can be even more daunting.  That’s why data protection training is an essential part of any organisations data management strategy.

At Hope & May, our data protection training courses are designed to be accessible, informative, and engaging. Our aim is that every attendee completes our courses with a greater understanding of Data Protection Law, and the confidence to get on with the task at hand.

At the end of the training, you, your staff, your volunteers, and/or your trustees, will:

  • Have a greater understanding of Data Protection Law
  • Be aware of any data law changes and how they will impact your business
  • Understand the risks (and consequences) associated with poor data management strategies.
  • What to do in the event of a data breach
  • Have increased confidence in handling and processing personal data (including the processing of specialist data)

Data protection training tailored to you

The Data Protection training is available both in-house and virtually. We have e-learning facilities to measure the effectiveness of the training, to set tests and to issue certificates of attendance. We also offer a range of helpful documents to take away.

Training delegates will leave with an understanding of the following:

  • Recent enforcement actions
  • Personal Data
  • Data Subjects
  • Data protection legislation
  • The seven principles of data protection
  • The six lawful bases
  • The data protection documents
  • Data Breach and phishing
  • Data subject’s rights
  • Special category and criminal records data
  • Subject access request management
  • Working with other organisations (data processors, controllers, joint controllers)


Ensuring your staff are well-trained is crucial for maintaining data protection compliance. However, we understand that keeping up with training can be challenging. That’s why we’ve developed our V-learning—a solution designed to streamline your compliance efforts.

Our V-learning platform features pre-recorded videos covering a range of topics, from general awareness training to handling subject access requests and responding to data breaches, making it easy for your team to grasp key concepts efficiently.

We’ve tailored these videos to cater to both your general staff and those in roles requiring a deeper understanding of their data protection obligations.

We regularly update our videos, ensuring that your training materials stay current with evolving regulations. Additionally, each employee has the opportunity to complete an assessment quiz and receive a certificate upon completion.

With our V-learning solution, we make it easier than ever to equip your team with the knowledge they need to uphold data protection standards effectively.
