We sometimes receive personal data from other organisations, for example, where they have passed us information about people who are interested in our training courses.
We may collect information from social media where you have given us permission to do so, or if you post on one of our social media pages.
We may also use other organisations to help us conduct research and analysis on personal data (and this can result in new personal data being created).

We may collect or store data known as sensitive personal data (such as information relating to additional learning needs or ethnicity). We will do this where we have been asked to do so by official Government agencies or where the information is needed for the assessment of additional educational support needs.
If we do this, we’ll take extra care to ensure your personal data is protected.
Accidents or incidents
If an accident or incident occurs in one of our events or involving one of our employees then we’ll keep a record of this (which may include personal data and sensitive personal data).
How do we use personal information?
We only ever use your personal data with your consent, or where it is necessary:
