Information we collect on you

When we collect and process your personal data we are doing so on our own behalf, and not on behalf of any third parties. We are a data controller under the terms of data protection legislation.

We collect information in the following ways:

Course enquiries – if you enquire about a course, we will ask you for basic information, including your name, address, telephone number, email address and specific questions relating to your enquiry. At the time of making the enquiry we will ask for your consent to process your data, allowing us to answer your enquiry efficiently.

Course applications – if you apply and subsequently enrol on a course, the information you supply will be used to enable us to meet the statutory responsibilities outlined by the Government, including creating a unique learner number (ULN). When necessary, the information will be shared with the Education and Skills Funding Agency and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). You can read the Student Privacy Notice on the Policies & Procedures page on our website.

Schools & employers – we may send you general marketing information on news, events, surveys and course information, you can opt-out or update your preferences at any time by emailing –

Suppliers – we are required to collect information from suppliers to ensure that our relationship runs smoothly. We require contact details from staff within your organisation so that we can communicate effectively with you. As part of any contractual obligations we may also collect and store bank details so that we can pay for the services you provide.

Cookies –when someone visits our website we use cookies to collect information about how visitors use our site. Most websites use cookies, which is a software programme that allows us to improve user experience and to see whether your computer has our website before.

If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognise you and therefore won’t be able to keep you logged in.

You can enable, view or disable your cookies at any time within your internet settings.

Google Analytics – We monitor website visits through third party software called Google Analytics. The cookies collect information anonymously, which means it is done in a way that you cannot be identified. It collects information on visitor behaviour patterns including the number of visitors to the site, pages visited and how visitors have come to the site. These cookies also track users’ interests which can be used for re-targeting advertising on other websites.
