Data protection (GDPR)


This online module is CPD Accredited with the CPD Accreditation Service.

This CPD Accredited Data Protection online learning module explains the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the DPA (Data Protection Act 2018)

This is the only online data protection course that has been produced specifically for registered childminders but it is equally useful to others working within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and/or the Requirements of the Childcare Register.

Unlike other courses, this one clearly outlines the links between the requirements of the EYFS, Childcare Register and the requirements of the GDPR and aims to help you fully understand the GDPR and your responsibilities regarding the data you need to keep as part of your childminding business. Most requirements are common sense and you will already have systems in place to meet at least some of them.

It also explains the additional paperwork that you will need to have in place in your childminding business in order to fulfill the GDPR requirements.

At the end of this course you should be able to:

  • Understand the requirements of the GDPR and the DPB (Data Protection Act 2018)

  • Implement the GDPR in your childminding/ early years setting

  • Know whether you have to register with the Information Commissioners Office

  • Understand how the Freedom of Information Act affects data protection

Childminding UK online training is available to you to either complete all at once or re-visit as many times as you need to depending on the time you have available. Unlike some online courses, there is no limit to how many times you can retake the Knowledge Test at the end of the course. Once successfully completed, you can print off your own named certificate for your record of ongoing Continuous Professional Development. We will also give your name and email address to the CPD Accreditation Certification Service so they can send you your CPD certificate too which will state how many CPD hours you have achieved. You can view their privacy statement on their website
