Dojo: Local Government


Share this page

Product Synopsis

GDPR & cyber awareness training and e-learning for all council staff developed by BAFTA award-winning filmmakers in collaboration with 10 local authorities. Based on original GDPR and cyber training commissioned by the BBC; now a mandatory course for all BBC staff.



Introducing Dojo

GDPR and cyber security is a priority for all local authorities, especially with the impact of GDPR. In addition to the range of software and systems that councils deploy to stop threats, a key element in the fight against the growing and changing threat of cyber crime is staff awareness, both keeping them supported and up-to-date.


Working closely with Heads of IT, Information Security and Information Governance experts from 10 collaborating councils, Dojo has been designed to specifically focus on local authority staffs' understanding of GDPR along with the cyber challenges they face and public sector cyber threat protocols.



Taster Video

The short taster below gives you an overview of the style, quality and tone of the video based training and shows excerpts from a number of different modules. 




Dojo delivers 60 minutes of high quality animated video across 12 modules along with associated e-Learning - including key learning points and interactive Q&A. Each video lasts 3-5 minutes and the pedigree of animation, as well as clarity of messaging, means that staff are engaged without being overwhelmed. The modules are clear on the range of threats, how they manifest themselves and - critically - how to mitigate them.

Modules listed above are covered by the license and will be kept up-to-date in terms of cyber messages and local authority security protocols.

Responses from our customers

“We liked the short/sharp elements of the training as they reinforced the messages from the previous training we had run – also how they focussed on very relevant issues like what to look out for in phishing and reputational damage from failure to protect personal information and the organisation” - Arun District Council


“Dojo is a very accessible training package which staff find easier to use and more interesting than more conventional, text based solutions.” - Cannock Chase District Council


Overall,the feedback for Dojo has been very positive - staff found the training informative and straightforward, and liked how Dojo covered a variety of topics. What they have also appreciated is the layout and structure of the training - it is simple and easy to follow.”Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils
