Privacy notice:

This course is part of the new nationwide Click Start training programme developed by the Institute of Coding (IoC) – a national consortium of industry, educators and outreach providers and funded by Nominet – the public benefit company that operates and protects UK Internet infrastructure and uses its funds to support projects that promote digital inclusion. The new programme helps to tackle the UK’s digital skills gap by offering skills and training to more than 25,000 learners across the country who may not have previously had opportunities. We collect personal data to contact learners about the progress of their application and to share training opportunities with other Click Start partners or affiliated organisations. We may also contact you about marketing opportunities. We will not sell or otherwise share your data with unaffiliated third parties.

Anonymised data will also be held for evaluation and reporting purposes, to assess the impact of the programme and to ensure Click Start scholarships are available to those who need them most. Please contact Click Start if you have any questions about how your data is being used.
