How we work

The Data Protection Education approach uses recognised frameworks supported by experienced individuals to guide you on your journey to compliance.

That includes tools, best practice, implementation strategies as well as monitoring and reporting for every part of the Information Commissioner's Office accountability framework. 

With a named consultant assigned to work directly with your organisation, and a core-DPO team ready to respond whenever you need us, you can be sure that our hands-on approach delivers results that go beyond your compliance and accountability requirements.

We work with organisations small and large, schools, trusts and education support services. Everyone gets tailored support that meets their needs, timescales and budget.

“From initial engagement through to actively working with our schools and Central Team, we have been impressed with the whole DPE team. Their knowledge, support and advice about practical application of GDPR in schools and Academy Trusts has been extremely helpful and well received by leaders across our organisation”

“DPE provides excellent support for all our GDPR requirements. The knowledge of the team and experience within the education sector means they understand how we work and can support us with data protection queries and advice. The online training has upskilled all of our staff and improved our practice. 

The onsite training for key staff at each school has given our team the confidence to roll our improvements to how we handle data at the local level. Support with policies and data protection impact assessments has allowed us to take a proactive approach to data protection at the Trust.”
