The General Data Protection Regulation came into force on  25 May 2018 along with the Data Protection Act 2018, replacing the Data Protection Act of 1998.

This course guides you through the requirements of both pieces of legislation to ensure that your council remains compliant.  Your council needs to manage, review and record how it deals with data protection, along with subject access requests and data breaches.


This course is recommended for all clerks and councillors involved in compliance.

  • Understanding 'data' - what it is and how your council records and processes it.

  • The changes brought about by the General Data Protection Regulations and the Data Protection Act 2018.

  • The actions that need to be taken by a council to ensure compliance.

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!

Excellent, provides comfort ahead of the task.

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

Very informative and covered what I need to know.
