We'll send you a link via email a day or two before the session is due to be held, so you can just click on the link to join in. You'll need a laptop, tablet or smartphone with a camera; if you haven't tried this technology before that's fine - we'll happily conduct a quick test session with you the day before if you like.
Comments from recent data protection courses:
Thank you so much for all the hard work the girls of NPTS do to help Parish Clerks - I don't know what we would without you! As always the training with Julie was extremely helpful and I will use the documents to present the information on Data Protection to my council for their discussion.
Excellent and informative, I now feel (slightly) less daunted by it all!
Very good and lots of handouts which is most helpful.
Thank you for an excellent course, as always!
