Changes have been made to the GDPR eLearning module to reflect members’ feedback, including the addition of a certificate at the end the end of the module, which serves as validation. Please remember that the deadline for all current adult members to complete the GDPR training module is Monday 31 December 2018; and that all new joining adult members who do not have a full role from Tuesday 25 September must complete the GDPR training module within five months from the date of appointment.

Changes will be made to compass to reflect this change, in practical terms this mean that an appointment will not change to ‘full’ until a member has validated the GDPR eLearning training module in addition to the current Getting Started Training requirements, POR will be updated to reflect that we have added the GDPR training module into Getting Started Training.

As a reminder we have made the validation process simpler, by adding a certificate at the end of the eLearning this now counts as the validation. Learners will need to email a copy of the certificate to a Training Adviser, Manager or Administrator to update their training details on compass.
