This learning event will focus on how schools can meet their obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and the Australian Privacy Principles with respect to recordkeeping, data management and archiving of school records.

This learning event will consider the entire lifespan of information and data management, from the collection and use of personal information, to the destruction of personal information when it is no longer required.

Our presenters include experts in archiving who will share best practice tips and tricks for record management and school archiving.
