  • Providing advice on best practice as well as making recommendations, including organisational learning and/or policy and practice changes, in response to any information governance matters. 
  • Developing and delivering an ongoing programme of training to all staff on SFC’s information and governance requirements and responsibilities. Central to this will be the continuing review of our systems and processes including our policies and procedures on information and governance.

It would be beneficial to have some knowledge of the further and higher education sectors.
