How We Use Your Personal Information
This privacy notice is issued by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), on behalf of the Secretary of State for the Department of Education (DfE). It is to inform learners how their personal information will be used by the DfE, the ESFA (an executive agency of the DfE) and any successor bodies to these organisations. For the purposes of relevant data protection legislation, the DfE is the data controller for personal data processed by the ESFA.
Your personal information is used by the DfE to exercise its functions and to meet its statutory responsibilities, including under the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 and to create and maintain a unique learner number (ULN) and a personal learning record (PLR). Your information will be securely destroyed after it is no longer required for these purposes.
Your information may be shared with third parties for education, training, employment and well-being related purposes, including for research. This will only take place where the law allows it and the sharing is in compliance with data protection legislation.

The Data Protection Act 2018 is concerned with electronic use and storage of personal data and information and PETA and its staff are bound by the requirements of this act. The Act requires that data provided by learners of PETA, must only be used for the purposes for which it was originally collected and that data no longer required must be destroyed. Staff will ensure that all information is held securely and treated in confidence, with access rights for relevant individuals only. Learners must ensure that all the information that PETA holds about them is accurate and up to date.
