Our Data Protection Training Courses

Our Training Offering

Your staff are pivotal in ensuring that your organisation can comply with the data protection rules. Staff need the right knowledge and skills to protect the personal data that they process and manage it appropriately to limit your risk. The ICO is extremely clear that training and awareness are key to demonstrating how an organisation complies with data protection law.

We offer two types of training to suit your needs:

  1. Tailored data protection training. Do you have an in-house team or group to train on  data protection issues that are specific to your organisation?

    We provide tailored data protection training where we work with you to design and deliver training that meets your particular requirements.

    Go to Tailored Data Protection Training to find out more.

  2. Data protection training courses. We provide live, trainer-led data protection courses on a rolling programme throughout the year. As part of your general compliance training, you may need some high-level training that staff can attend throughout the year, whether it is when they join, or as an annual refresher . Alternatively, there may be some teams in your organisation – say, HR or Marketing – who need training on the areas of data protection that particularly affect them.

    See our Live, Trainer-Led Data Protection Courses below to find out more and book.

Live, Trainer-Led Data Protection Courses

Our range of training courses can help you to build up the necessary skills to understand various areas of data protection and how to apply that knowledge.

Our two expert solicitors and seasoned trainers, Stephanie and Ben, deliver our regular programme of data protection courses live via an online platform – usually Microsoft Teams.

  1. Invoice and payment
    1. When you send a booking request, we will send you an invoice for the event. The amount invoiced is non-refundable, except as expressly set out in these terms. 
    2. A discount may be offered for more than one delegate booking at the same time on the same course from the same organisation (and providing no other discount offer is applicable). If applicable, we will discuss and agree that discount directly with you during the booking confirmation process, and the agreed discount will be shown on your applicable invoice.
    3. You will be expected to pay your invoice within seven days of it being issued, and in any event within seven days before the event is due to run. If you have not paid, we may not permit you to attend the course. 
    4. Should a late booking be accepted, you will be expected to pay your invoice on receipt.
    5. We reserve the right to charge interest for late payments at the rate payable under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998. The rate that we will charge will be eight per cent (8%) above the Bank of England Base Rate on the date that the invoice was sent. We will charge interest from the date the invoice is unpaid to the date that you pay it, even if we have to take court proceedings to cover the amount owed. If we take proceedings against you because you do not pay, we will ask the court to order you to pay all the costs that we incur in proceedings. If you have made payments on dates and in amounts different from those we agreed, and we have suffered exchange-rate losses of over five per cent (5%) of the sums due, we reserve the right to charge additional amounts to cover our costs.
  2. Cancellations/refunds

      1. If the course is cancelled by Pritchetts Law LLP in the circumstances at paragraph 2(a)(ii) below, you will be refunded in full.
      2. Courses will run if five or more attendees have signed up and paid seven days before the event is due to run. If fewer than five people sign up for the event, or there are circumstances that are beyond our reasonable control (such as the loss of Internet connectivity), we reserve the right to cancel the event and offer an alternative date for the relevant course. If there is no date available that suits you, we will refund in full any monies that have been paid at that time. 
      3. Very occasionally, we may need to change the trainer, content (to update it where there have been legislative or regulatory changes), timings or the date of the course.
      4. For all bookings, our liability is limited to the amount of the fee actually paid to us.
    2. Cancellations by you
      1. For any cancellations less than one week in advance of the booked course date, no refund will be given.
      2. For any cancellations more than one week in advance of the booked course date, delegates may EITHER:
        1. Subject to paragraph 2(b)(iii) below, transfer to any other equivalent price or cheaper course free of charge. If the desired course to transfer to is more expensive, the balance will be invoiced.

    2. We will not record the ‘live’ training course, and you agree that you will not record the training course in any circumstances.
    3. You acknowledge that we do not guarantee that information shared with us and other delegates via the online platform is secure, and that there are therefore risks if you choose to disclose confidential information or personal data.
