Additional Information about our Partner Educational Programmes
Software Cornwall’s Educational programmes are run in partnership with Cornwall College, and as such these programmes are governed and managed primarily using Cornwall College data protection policies, especially when we are working with younger students under the age of 16. Details can be found here https://www.cornwall.ac.uk/governance/your-information/
When applying for educational programmes where applicants are under 16 we ask for contact information of a parent or guardian in order to communicate information and details of events and activities.
For some of our educational funded activities we may request that participants confirm their date of birth to confirm eligibility for funded support. This information is solely used for eligibility purposes or to identify if an applicant is under 16 and therefore parental/adult consent and communications are required.
Depending on an education participants route into the program, we may share some personal data with our funders and partners, namely Cornwall College, the Careers Enterprise Company and the Real Ideas Organisation. This is to confirm a participant’s ongoing eligibility and to monitor progress across programs.
With regards to data collected for our education program, we retain data for three years from the end of each funding programme.
