Please complete your GDPR e-learning module

Sussex staff are being encouraged to take the University’s GDPR e-learning module.

Despite the good response to date – with about 600 staff having completed the course - approximately 80% of staff have not yet taken the opportunity to understand their obligations under the new General Data Protection Regulation.

GDPR introduced more strict requirements for how we collect, use and manage personal data. “It is important that all staff are aware of the changes and the new obligations,” says Vice-Chancellor Adam Tickell.

The online course explains the key aspects of GDPR and the important principles when processing personal data.

To take this course, click on the green button on the e-learning webpage to log in to LearnUpon, the University’s staff e-learning platform. Then go to My Courses and search for GDPR.

A fairly large number of staff are showing as ‘in progress’ for this module, having signed in but not yet completed the course, and this could be for a number of reasons. Don’t forget you need to complete the test at the end of the module and exit correctly, following the instructions provided, for the module to show as completed.

The GDPR team will shortly be sending out individual reminders to all staff who have not yet taken the course, encouraging them to make this a priority.

If you have any questions about completing the module or have problems accessing it, email the GDPR team.

Once you have completed the e-learning, a number of training sessions are available for you to attend if you would like more information about GDPR beyond what is already covered in the e-learning module. You can book your additional training here.
