SEAC will only discuss or share any information of a personal nature with parents or carers with the Apprentice's express and prior permission except in the circumstances where there are grounds for believing that the learner will cause serious physical harm to themselves or to others, or have harm caused to him/her. In such circumstances, SEAC staff will, where possible, seek the learner's consent to divulge information to a third party. Where it appears that the learner is no longer able to take responsibility for his or her own actions, consent would not be sought.
At no time will an Apprentice's personal information be passed to any organisation for marketing or sales purposes. From time to time Apprentices are approached to take part in surveys by mail and phone, which are aimed at enabling the Skills Funding Agency and its partners to monitor performance, improve quality and plan future provision.
The information provided by our apprentice will be passed to the Skills Funding Agency that are responsible for funding, planning and encouraging education and training for young people and adults in England, and is registered under the Data Protection Act 1998.
The information will also be shared with other organisations for the purpose of administration, careers and other guidance and statistical and research purposes. Other organisations with which we will share information include, the Department for Children, Schools and Families, Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills, Connexions, Higher Education Statistics Agency, Higher Education Funding Council for England, educational institutions and organisations performing research and statistical work on behalf of the Skills Funding Agency or its partners.
