Subjects Rights

As a learner, you have a number of rights in relation to the data we hold on you.

The main rights are as follows:

  • The right to view any records or data we hold
  • The right to request that we amend or update that data
  • The right to request that we remove some information
Whilst these rights exist, we would always assure you that we take very seriously our responsibilities in relation to managing all the data we hold.

We endeavour to make sure that it is always:

Step 5 If your request is successful, we will arrange for you to review the relevant records.

Step 6 Once you have reviewed the records, we hope you will be satisfied that we have managed your data effectively. However, if you feel that something in there is inaccurate and needs amending or removing, then you may request this.
