It is essential that Jazzartuk collects personal information about candidates & passes this information on to the SQA. For example, they require names to print on certificates, addresses to post certificates to and dates of birth to distinguish between candidates of similar names. We must also forward details of achievements to the SQA so that they can issue certificates. Candidates undertaking SQA qualifications must supply these personal details to Jazzartuk.
Access to this information is strictly controlled but is shared within the education & training community, when appropriate. For example, the SQA supplies the Scottish Government with data for statistical analysis/official surveys.
Candidates have a right of access to the data held about them. In general, parents & others do not have the right of access under the Data Protection Act. All applications must come from the Candidate. Jazzartuk will abide by the Data Protection principles, information on which can be found on: www.dataprotection.gov.uk
Parental/Guardian consent (for students under the age of 16) or personal consent for the above must be given before any candidate can enrol with Jazzartuk for SQA.
