Who is this training designed for?
All support staff working in a set of Chambers, including those working in junior through to senior posts, responsible for:
- Accounts and Finance
- Clerking and Practice Management
- Fee collection
- Marketing Managers & Business Development
- Reception/Front of House
The ABC GDPR training module was specially developed and written for the Chambers’ world by allying the regulatory and GDPR expertise of Jane Sarginson a member of St Philips Chambers, who specialises in data privacy and regulatory law and has spoken to audiences comprised of solicitors, barristers and commercial clients on the topic of the GDPR, to the experience of the ABC team and its consultants who have worked in the niche Chambers industry for many years and have been helping barristers and Chambers in their GDPR compliance since 2017.
This on-line training course is designed to give Chambers’ Support Staff a good working knowledge of the General Data Protection Regulation. The course covers the principles of the GDPR and will help you to understand the need to process people’s personal data lawfully. GDPR compliance starts with knowledge and awareness and the aim of this training programme is to provide you with the information that you need. Those with a greater responsibility for GDPR compliance in Chambers or individuals who wish to dig deeper into the regulation and learn more about GDPR compliance can upgrade to the Bar version at a reduced rate by contacting ABC on [email protected].
The Bar version provides detailed information on the GDPR and is a useful point of reference.
Regular appropriate training is part of that compliance, so let us begin.
How this training works
The training is divided into manageable sections. Each section can be worked on separately and you are able to leave and re-join from different devices from the point at which you left off. The training can be completed when you choose. You can work at your own pace and as and when your working day allows. Your licence is valid for 12 months from date of purchase and you can revisit the course material as often as you wish to refresh your memory.
Each section contains an overview of the Chambers relevant requirements of the GDPR. The overview is designed to be useful and informative to both those with little GDPR knowledge and those looking for a refresher session.
The training is presented in a linear fashion which guides you through each section in turn. Each sub-section needs to be completed before moving onto the next. Once the training has been completed you can revisit the module and drop in and out of any section, in any order, as you wish.
At the end of the course is a test of your GDPR knowledge via randomly selected questions designed to be of relevance to those working in a set of Chambers. Attaining a pass mark of 75% or more will gain access to a training certificate which you can download and print for your records.
As yet, there is no official GDPR certification scheme for organisations, but the regulation encourages the adoption of certification schemes as a means to demonstrate compliance.
