Opportunity Access Works works in partnership with various bodies to deliver our training services. 

This privacy policy explains how we use the personal data we receive from you and our partners in connection with your participation in our services.

What Information do we collect about you?

Our services are welfare-to-work provisions aimed at providing specialised support to Unemployed and Economically Inactive participants.

We only use your personal data for the purposes permitted by our partners in order to deliver our services.

As a result the personal data that we use to deliver these services include your name and contact details, national insurance number, benefits status and any barriers to work, details of any dependents, details of any work history, references, qualifications, education, ethnicity and information about your health as well as any criminal records. We only collect this data because it is often required by our partners to deliver our services.

What do we do with your personal data?

We only use your personal data to deliver our services to the standard required by our partners, for audit purposes and to track the effectiveness of our service delivery. This includes providing personal data (including references) and where appropriate sensitive personal data, to training partners and prospective employers who will use it for providing additional support relating to our services, processing job applications, or delivering education and training.

It will also be used to confirm your progress whilst working with us and your employment status. Your personal data will only be shared with such organisations to the extent that it is necessary to deliver our services. All of this data is also available to our funding partner and we will keep it for as long as we are required by them.

Data Sharing and Transfers

Your data will be saved where it is necessary to do so in order to deliver our services as described above, we do not share your personal data with third parties and we will never sell your personal data to anyone. 

Your data is held securely in the UK and will not be transferred outside the European Economic Area. 

Access to your information and correction

You have the right to request a copy of the information that we or our partners hold about you. We want to make sure that your information is accurate and up to date and are very happy to remove or amend any information that you think is inaccurate. You also have the right to request that we either delete or restrict our processing of your personal data and to complain about the processing of your personal data.
