How we use your information

The following notice provides further detail of how your personal data is used to help you explore and plan your pathway to becoming a teacher. By registering with the NCTL, you need to understand how we will use your personal data.

The Get Into Teaching website is administered by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL), an Executive Agency of the Department for Education. We take your privacy very seriously and are committed to meeting our obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998 and protecting your rights and freedoms under this legislation.

The information we hold about you is used for identification, administration and analysis purposes. These include using personal data that you supply to us in order to contact you to provide relevant information about teaching and teacher training; that we believe will be of interest to you. To do this, we share certain personal data with contracted partners and other educational bodies including UCAS, who manage the application system for teacher training. Our sharing of personal data with UCAS is to support and track the progress of applications and to ensure the best use is made of information such as intended training years or subjects of study.  

Information (such as contact details and subject preferences) we collect may be shared with third parties in order to provide data processing and marketing services only in relation to teacher training. These companies are required to strictly comply with our privacy policies that prohibit the use of personal data for their own business purposes.

We have designed this site to help you explore and plan your pathway to becoming a teacher. We collect information about you from:

  • Your profile

As you add preferences to your online profile, this information is shared with our Get Into Teaching phone helpline to ensure that they have an accurate picture of your preferences and circumstances. To enable this, we use third parties to use your data to help us show content that is relevant to you.

  • The content you look at on our site

We use cookies to track the pages on our site that you visit. This information is processed automatically and, whilst it may be reviewed in order to help us to improve our site, this process uses anonymised data. This means that your personal details are stripped from tracking information we use.

Changes to our privacy policy

This information was last updated on 2 September 2016. We may update this privacy policy periodically, so you may want to check the latest version before providing your personal data to the NCTL

Please contact us on Freephone 0800 389 7900 if you would like to ask us any questions about how we use your personal data or wish to have your details removed from our database.

We use cookies to make our services easy, useful and reliable. Find out more on how we use cookies
