Learning Paths

Data Protection  –  A Matter for Everyone is based on a learning management system which means that a learner is directed through our course(s) on a learning path. The route through the learning path is determined by the system and only allows learners to continue to the next module if they have completed all of the training before it.

The beauty of a learning management system using learning paths is that when a learner finishes their training for that day, the next time they log in they will be able to continue from where they left off.

A learner's progress through a learning path can be monitored by the administrator of the system (an appointed member of your staff).
