What is the Information Sharing Protocol for Education and Learning?
  • The WEISF agreement is supplemented by a specific information sharing protocol between ECC and all Education and Learning providers
  • We consider that this will provide support to all schools and providers in fulfilling your duties as data controllers, ensuring the safe, lawful and secure sharing of personal information, in line with Information Commissioners Office (ICO) requirements. 

Schools are being encouraged to sign up to the 2016/17 framework before Friday 16 December 2016 using this electronic fo​rm link.
