EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Practitioner Award

MQF Level 6 CPD Award
Starting: 11th November 2021

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:

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



  • I thoroughly enjoyed the course provided by LEAD training. It was highly informative and well executed. I will definitely consider taking further courses with LEAD training in the future.
    Melanie Vella (November 2020)
  • I highly recommend Lead & Training Services for the professionalism in delivering training even in difficult circumstances surrounding COVID-19. I recently completed the Practitioners Award in GDPR which was relevant to my working needs and delivered by professional and competent people. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the team for the organisation of such courses.
    Jude Samuel Cauchi (October 2020)
  • The course is well designed taking a 360 approach to GDPR with lectures (delivered by extremely capable lecturers) covering the legal, technological and practical aspects of GDPR compliance. The schedule is also tailored to the professional lifestyle with lectures conveniently scheduled.
    Paul Caruana Turner (October 2019)
  • 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)
