More than a year after the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became part of UK legislation, schools are continuing to benefit from Accordio's popular outsourcing model.

Accordio offers a range of GDPR support, from carrying out an information audit to delivering a low-priced, outsourced Data Protection Officer Service which provides peace of mind for far less than the cost of appointing an in-house DPO.

The outsourcing option was particularly well received by schools, parish councils and charities, and continues to be popular. A lot of schools have this year taken advantage of Accordio's three-year fixed price offer and a number of new establishments have signed up for 2019/20 after trying to cope on their own last year.

In response to a clear demand, Accordio now offers a similar outsourcing option for Freedom of Information requests, allowing schools to get on with teaching their pupils while Accordio handles the distraction of FoI submissions. This can be purchased as a simple add-on to the GDPR service or separately if required.
