We have developed a training programme for the data protection and information governance apprenticeship standard and are looking to create a focused cohort specific to the NHS starting in November 2023. The materials and syllabus for this apprenticeship have been designed in partnership with employers, NHS leads and a leading data protection specialist, Act Now Training Limited. Typical job roles which are suitable for this apprenticeship include: data protection lead, data protection manager, information compliance officer, information governance lead, and privacy officer.
Please note: an apprentice can be existing member of the team who is looking to upskill or is wanting a new challenge. Or it could be someone who is a new member to the team.
