Our approach is not just theoretical; it’s practical, actionable, and tailored to meet the diverse needs of individuals and organisations alike.
The Advent IM training Academy is more than a learning space; it’s a hub for developing the skills of individuals. Through immersive and hands-on training, we aim to elevate the capabilities of our participants, equipping them with the tools necessary to navigate the evolving landscape of their professions with confidence and expertise.

“I have learnt so much from the two-day training course, whilst I had a knowledge of DPA 2018 and Data Protection in all, Mike and Michelle were able to delve in a little deeper and use examples of the legislation in practice, which in turn helped me to think of scenarios that this would be used within my organisation.”
