Our Privacy Notices provide more detailed information, and are specifically tailored to enquirers / students, visitors, suppliers / organisations and parents / guardians / third parties. These are available to download from the links accompanying this page.
What information do we collect about you?
We collect information about you when you enquire, apply and enrol on our courses. We also collect information throughout the duration of your time with us, including, where we are required to do so, contacting you a period of time after your training has completed for destination information about what you are doing.
How We Use Your Personal Information
Information collected about you during your learning, including any enquiries and applications will be used for educational administration, guidance, statistical research and health and safety purposes. Processing this data will enable the performance of the College to be monitored and for the College to operate effectively and plan future provision.
The personal information you provide is used in the exercise of providing education services and is therefore passed to the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), the Office for Students, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and when needed, the Department for Education (DfE) to meet legal responsibilities under the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009. Your information will also be shared with other Government related agencies to create and maintain your unique learner number (ULN) and Personal Learning Record (PLR) relating to your education as well as awarding organisations to support the administration of formal qualifications.
For students who are under 18
Whilst you are under 18, your parent(s) and/or guardian(s) will only be contacted or information disclosed to them when the relevant personnel within the College believes it is in your best interests to do so, following full consultation with you, where possible. This may be in connection with your attendance, academic progress or performance and/or with disciplinary proceedings for academic and non-academic offences.
Responsibilities and how to contact us
Cornwall College Group acts as both Data Controller and Data Processor, depending on the basis for holding your personal information.
