LEAPS data policy and data protection

To use the LEAPS online form you must agree to your details being held by LEAPS (which is hosted by the University of Edinburgh) for administration and tracking purposes, and being used by LEAPS to contact you in the future.

LEAPS would like to track your progress through LEAPS events, at the end of this school year, and through Further and/or Higher Education Institutions in order to support future LEAPS students. We will hold your details for up to eight years. We will take information from this online interview form.

LEAPS staff may request information from Skills Development Scotland and/or Further and Higher Education Institutions as required for tracking purposes.

LEAPS and its partners may use your data for research purposes to evaluate the effectiveness of the programme and to improve delivery of the LEAPS service.

In order to support your applications to Further and Higher Education Institutions, LEAPS may selectively make some interview information available to your school and to Further and Higher Education admissions staff.

If you would like further information regarding our data protection policy, or to opt out of any of the above, please contact LEAPS at leaps@ed.ac.uk or on 0131 650 4676.
