Data Protection Compliance Policy

The Data Protection Acts 1998 and 2003 govern much of the processing of personal data by the Teaching Council. The Council’s Data Protection Policy is intended to disclose in a transparent way how the Council obtains and processes personal data, so that all those who provide personal data will clearly understand the practices and procedures. However, it is not intended to be an exhaustive statement of every data practice undertaken by the Council, and it should be read in light of other relevant Council policies as published from time to time.
