Annex 1a: ESFA Learner Data

The data is primarily used by ESFA to perform its statutory functions on behalf of the Secretary of State as set out in the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 and for the exercise of functions of the Crown, a Minister of the Crown or that government department.

Information provided by learners may be shared with other organisations for purposes of administration, the provision of career and other guidance and statistical and research purposes, relating to education, training, employment and well-being. Other organisations include the Department for Works and Pensions, Local and Combined Authorities in England, the Greater London Authority, the Higher Education Statistics Agency, the Higher Education Funding Council for England, educational institutions and organisations performing research and statistical work on behalf of the Department for Education, or partners of those organisations.

The learner data processed by the delivery organisation on behalf of the ESFA is known as the Individualised Learner Record (ILR). The specification and standards for the ILR are published for each academic year (1 August until 31 July) by the ESFA.

Learner data is also collected and supplied to the Learning Records Service, a part of the ESFA. This personal data is used by the ESFA to issue learners with a Unique Learner Number (ULN), and to create and maintain the Personal Learning Record. Information held in the Personal Learning Record is shared with third parties such as providers of learning.

Further details of how this personal data is processed for these purposes are published for the Learning Records Service.

Annex 1b: Apprenticeships

As part of this service, individuals can apply for and be kept informed of apprenticeship opportunities. Personal data is processed to match registered candidate requirements to vacancies for apprenticeships, including for those employers or providers offering a guaranteed interview scheme. Inspire 2 Independence Ltd may act on behalf of employers to sift and shortlist candidates for interview that meet the criteria set by the employer. This service also enables Inspire 2 Independence Ltd, the ESFA and organisations funded to deliver the National Careers Service, and the Department for Works and Pensions (including Jobcentre Plus), and their employees or agents to search for apprenticeship vacancies and pass details to citizens and clients for the purpose of providing careers advice and guidance.

Annex 1c: National Careers Service

Inspire 2 Independence Ltd collects data to enable delivery of the services requested. Some optional demographic information (for example, ethnicity, declared disability) is requested to enable the ESFA to monitor the performance of the service against equality and diversity objectives, and to ensure that the ESFA is targeting the service to meet priority audience groups.

Further details about the service are provided on the National Careers Service website.

Annex 1d: European Social Fund

The ESFA funds education and training programmes in England for reducing unemployment and improving the prospects of people in work with support from the European Social Fund (ESF).

ESF pays half the costs and the ESFA matches this with government funding for education and training. Personal data for ESF directly funded learners is collected for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and is used to monitor and report on the effectiveness of the programme. Other learners, from the ESFA’s own work related programmes, are matched to ESF participants, for the same purposes and are called match learners. Both Direct and Match learners may be contacted by the ESF English Managing Authority, the DWP or its agents to carry out research and evaluation to inform the effectiveness of the programme. For direct funded learners on ESF programmes, both the DWP and the SFA are data controllers. Further information on the ESF programme is available on GOV.UK.

Further information about how ESFA and ESF handles your data can be found at:

Annex 2: DWP Participants

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) pays half towards the costs of employment related programmes. Personal data is collected to deal with a variety of areas including:

• social security (including Housing Benefit, Council Tax Reduction Schemes and Local Welfare Provision)
• child support
• employment and training

The information the DWP collects about you depends on the reason for your business, but they may use the information for any of these purposes. The DWP may also check information that they collect about you with other information they have.

The DWP may share your information for a number of reasons, including to:
• check the accuracy of information
• help people with particular difficulties, such as troubled families
• help people get or stay in work
• help people get education and training to improve their chances of getting work
• support people with independent living, including home help and respite care
