As a college we require some essential data from you. This data can be as simple and as routine as your address, a contact phone number or any medical conditions you may have. Such information is not only legally required by the college, but also ensures that you and your family are well served by the college for routine matters.
In most cases, this data will be provided by you when you apply and enrol and will then be ‘processes’ in the college student information system. Be assured that our systems are:
- Password protected
- Restricted to staff members and those with a ‘need to know’
- Regularly backed up and securely stored offsite
- Managed in accordance with the law and local guidance
However, as a college we handle and use a much wider variety of data which may include our CCTV recordings, results data, referrals to external agencies and much more. We will now let you know how we manage this kind of data. You can find further details of this in our ‘Annual Data Statement’ which is available on the website.
