Childcare Partnership Training
Why we process your personal data:
Childcare Partnerships include a range of organisations involved in the planning for childcare provision across N Ireland. The childcare partnerships make available a range of training courses to staff employed in the childcare sector. We need your personal information (name, job title, email address, workplace address & telephone number) to allow us to process your applications for training and events. We also may contact you in relation to other items of information that may be of interest to your early years practice. If you are providing the Childcare Partnerships with personal information on behalf of another person, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have their consent to provide the CCP with their information.
The lawful basis for processing your personal data:
We have identified the lawful basis for processing your personal information as consent/contract. When applying for a course provided by the Childcare Partnership, you provide the Childcare Partnership with some data about yourself. This data is stored in a secure portfolio that is created by the system enabling you to keep track of the training courses you attend and print certificates. Only you can view this profile. Childcare Partnerships only hold the data that you provide us with.
Withdrawal of consent to process your data:
You have the right to withdraw consent at any time and ask us to stop processing your personal data. Subsequently we will remove your information and contact details from our records. You can do so by contacting us by email CCPWebsite@hscni.net or by phoning the Health and Social Care Board (Childcare Partnerships) at 028 95362004.
Categories of personal data being processed:
The personal information that we process (name, job title, email address, workplace address & telephone number) is the information that you have supplied to help us to process your training requests and to provide you with information that may be of interest to you in your Early Years role.
Where do you get my personal data from?
We obtain this information from you when you provide them to us via the website booking system, email, telephone, and mail.
Do you share my personal data with anyone else?
The CCPs will only share your personal data (name and setting) with the training provider responsible for delivering the training that you have applied for (or that has been applied for on your behalf).
The purpose is to enable the training provider to keep a record of attendances at each course. The updated list is returned to CCP Training and Quality Team to enable us to review attendance levels and provide more relevant and high quality training.
We may however have to share your personal data with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) if you have contacted them about how we have handled your information.
Do you transfer my personal data to other countries?
The CCP does not transfer personal information to other countries.

GMGR Disposal Schedule – Section O https://www.health-ni.gov.uk/articles/disposal-schedule-section-o.
How do you use my personal data to make decisions about me?
We use your personal data to help us to allocate training. We aim to do this in a fair and equitable manner and therefore will consider how much training you have received in comparison with other settings. We also record notice of inability to attend. Having considered these factors we may or may not allocate you training. Aggregated numerical data is used to ensure that training continues to meet the needs of the staff employed in the childcare sector.
We will also use your data to communicate with you about your future training needs which will help us decide what training we provide to the Early Years sector and to let you know when there are special events and conferences happening.
