EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Practitioner Award

MQF Level 6 CPD Award
Starting: 7th November 2019

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) is a new legislation which provides a single, unified data privacy law for the European Union. UK organisations have until June 2018 to comply; failure to do so could result in fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million.

Please Note:

The Autumn 2019 intake is now open – Register today!

This EU GDPR course provides a comprehensive introduction to the legislation for organisations of any size. It explores the new legislation in depth, including implementation requirements, policies & processes. The course provides crucial information on the Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA), a compulsory requirement which allows organisations to understand what impact new business proposals may have on the privacy of involved parties at an early stage in the planning process.

This course will enable participants to obtain competencies and skills which will help them address the challenges imposed by the recent GDPR regulations with respect to data protection.

Course Outline & Dates



  • This is the second course I have done with LEAD in a year. The professional course from the technical assignment to the scenario based examination, coupled with the fact that the lecturers are practitioners giving practical examples, makes the whole experience worth to any Data Protection Officer.

  • Training services & programs are the best and trainers are very professional. Thank you very much!
    Janice Alfaro (September 2019)
  • A practical, informative and comprehensive take on the General Data Protection Regulation. Definitely recommended for professionals working in the field of compliance and/or data protection in Malta!
    Roxanne Meilak Borg (April 2019)
  • Course was very comprehensive, well-applied to the real business world, and lecturers were knowledgeable in their areas, and able to answer specific questions in detail. Details on assessment and expectations of course were provided somewhat late in the day, but this could be attributed to the fact that the course was in its first run, and the criteria still had to be specifically established. Would recommend.
    Anna Maria Cardona Schranz (April 2019)
