How We Use Your Personal Information The personal information you provide is passed to the Skills Funding Agency, and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

The information you provide may be shared with other organisations for education, training, employment and well-being related purposes, including for research. You may be contacted after you have completed your programme of learning to establish whether you have entered employment or gone onto further training or education.

From time to time students are approached to take part in surveys by mail and phone, which are aimed at enabling the SFA and its partners to monitor performance, improve quality and plan future provision.

You will be given the opportunity to choose not to be contacted by the SFA or its partners in respect of surveys and research when you register online. The SFA values your views on the education or training which you receive, and will use these to help bring about improvements for learners in England.
