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.

The last GDPR course was held in November 2022 and received a 100% feedback score.

Surprisingly enjoyable!

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.

This was one of the best sessions I have attended, and I have been on lots!

I learnt enough to confidently review our council's documentation and ensure that all councillors are aware.

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!

Excellent, provides comfort ahead of the task.

Very good, lots of things explained – would definitely ask councillors to attend.

Great training session, really useful, informative and applicable. Excellent and knowledgeable tutor. Thank you!
