The SFA have noted that all contract holders understand their duties and that of the SFA

The Secretary of State for Education acting through the Skills Funding Agency (SFA), an executive agency of the Department for Education is, for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998, registered as a data controller for personal data processed by the SFA and other third parties contracted to process data for the SFA.

The Department for Education’s Data Protection registration can be viewed on the Information Commissioner’s website. Changes to this Privacy Notice:  The SFA may amend this Privacy Notice from time to time. If we make any substantial changes in the way we use your personal information we will make that information available by amending this notice. Children and privacy.

The SFA does not knowingly solicit personal information from children under the age of 13 or send them requests for personal information. Sharing data The SFA generally collects data on behalf of the Secretary of State for the purposes of fulfilling the Secretary of State’s statutory functions. Where the SFA shares data with a third party who undertakes work for the SFA, the SFA requires that the sharing is undertaken under contract and is subject to a data sharing agreement, specifying the secure management of the data. Data might also be shared with other bodies, as informed to learners, for the purposes of those organisations fulfilling their own statutory purposes. Such sharing is undertaken using a standard data sharing agreement for specified legitimate and restricted purposes.


Security The security of the SFA’s systems which process and store data are regularly reviewed in accordance with Government requirements, and assessments and checks promoted by the Information Commissioner’s Office. Data is securely deleted when it is no longer required for the purposes collected. Questions or concerns about personal data If you have any questions or concerns about our collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information, please write to the SFA’s Information Rights Manager, Cheylesmore House, Quinton Road, Coventry, CV1 2WT.

Learner data is collected by the SFA in accordance with the terms and conditions of funding imposed on providers of learning, for example, Further Education colleges and private training organisations. The data collected from learners is processed by the SFA, as explained in the Privacy Notice issued by providers to each learner. The data is primarily used by the SFA to perform statutory functions on behalf of the Secretary of State as set out in the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009. Where personal data is required for the Department for Education (including its Executive Agency, the Education Funding Agency) or any of its successor bodies, to perform its statutory functions, this data is collected and processed on behalf of the Department for Education, or its successor bodies. 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.


APM would like you to know if you have something to offer to jobseekers with disabilities or poor health, then APM would like to hear from you and to discuss working together on the upcoming Work & Health Programme.

Still owned and run by the Occupational Therapist who founded the business in 1994, APM is the largest provider of Australia’s Disability Employment Programme and is proud to be the highest rated major provider, with 22 of its contracts rated 5 stars. After a year of major investment in the newly acquired UK business this has now become the highest performing provider of the Work Programme as well.

APM is bidding to run the Work & Health Programme across London. However, we believe that delivering a great service for Work & Health will mean integrating the great work already being done by local providers rather than replacing it.
