Patrick Wood asked:

Is GDPR training a legal requirement?


Dear Patrick, Good afternoon. A critical component of the GDPR is training company/organisation employees. Training is a requirement under existing legislation, for example, principle 7 of the UK Data Protection Act mandates that employees be well trained, and the GDPR reinforces this. However, the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has seen a fundamental shift in attitudes towards privacy and data protection in the UK. Thanks

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
