Data Security and University Widening Participation Services

Alex Nunn


You are working as an assistant DPO in a large Post-92 University. Universities in the UK are encouraged to widen participation in Higher Education from groups that are traditionally less represented in HE. As such, the Widening Participation team have been working with local schools and undertaking events with children, including those from groups that are less represented in HE. Where these are sixth form students they are often invited into the University and WP team keep a register of these young people so that they can track the effectiveness of their outreach activities by surveying the young people to see how many were applying to University and the different Universities they applied to. Your task is to advise on what data that is currently stored should be kept and used and what arrangements can be made into the future to ensure the effectiveness of these activities.
