The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has a useful cyber security e-learning training package for staff: ‘Stay Safe Online: Top Tips for Staff’. It’s appropriate for a non-technical audience, with tips designed to complement existing policies and procedures.
Free to use, with no log-in needed, it takes less than 30 minutes to complete (which includes the quiz at the end).
The training introduces why cyber security is important; how attacks happen, and covers four key areas:
- defending yourself against phishing
- using strong passwords
- securing your devices
- reporting incidents (‘if in doubt, call it out’).

In addition, the NCSC has produced a summary infographic, which covers the core messages from the e-learning. It can be accessed here:
I recommend integrating this NCSC’s e-learning package into your school or Trust’s programme of staff training and induction on data protection and using the infographic as a summary reminder.
The Information Commissioner’s Office recommends that staff receive training on data protection at least every 2 years. For information on how I can support you with this, see my Training and Consultancy page.
