Data Security (Information Governance) eLearning

Data Security and IG training forms part of the Core Essential Training requirements of the Trust. 

This training is particularly important as it also forms part of our IG Toolkit Submission which provides assurance that the Trust can be trusted to maintain the confidentiality and security of personal information.

All staff must successfully complete their annual Data Security and IG training via eLearning through ESR.

Most staff will have been auto enrolled onto the correct course and will see on the ESR homepage an icon to press play to complete the Data Security and IG eLearning eAssessment (or you can choose to undertake the full learning module including the eAssessment).  Please follow the appropriate option below:

a)       If you have never completed the module online before this guide illustrates what you need to do: https://www.nwyhelearning.nhs.uk/elearning/northeast/DurhamandDarlington/DSAutoEnroll/story.html

b)       If in previous years you completed it by eLearning you need to ensure you select the option to "Renew and Play".  This guide illustrates what you need to do:  https://www.nwyhelearning.nhs.uk/elearning/northeast/DurhamandDarlington/DSrenew/story.html

c)       If you have not completed it before, and have not been auto enrolled (as above), you can access the eLearning eAssessment and full module of learning by navigating to the Learning section on ESR. Ensure the drop down menu says "Learning Certification" then type in "439 elearning" and click "Go". Scroll down to find the "439 Information Governance Data Security" module and click on it. Then select "Subscribe", then on the next page "Finish" and then play the module.  A short guide on how to do this can be found here: https://www.nwyhelearning.nhs.uk/elearning/northeast/DurhamandDarlington/EDSubenrol/story.html
