How we use your information Registration of an NQT on the NQT Manager software requires the Appropriate Body to collect an NQT’s personal data (including identifiers such as name, date of birth, national insurance number, employment contracts and remuneration details, qualifications and absence information). and contact details (including name and email address) of their mentor and induction tutor. Ignite Teaching School Alliance uses NQT Manager to register NQTs and gather assessment forms for their Induction year in accordance with the DfE’s Statutory Guidance. This is an online system created and managed by Evolution Software. Collecting and using information in this way is lawful because the process is required in accordance with the DfE’s Statutory Guidance (contained within the Induction for Newly Qualified Teachers document). How we share your information with Third parties We will not share information about the NQT, their school, Induction Tutors or Mentors with third parties without their consent unless the law or DfE Statutory Guidance allows us to. We are required, in accordance with DfE Statutory Guidance, to pass on some of the data collected through NQT Manager:  the Department for Education (DfE) in order to inform them of NQT Starters, Leavers, Passes and Failures  other Appropriate Bodies in order to obtain previous records and/or assessments

We will use the details saved in NQT Manager in order to send out communication and information regarding NQT Induction to schools, mentors, induction tutors and NQTs; we will not use this facility for marketing of any unrelated courses, events or activities. Schools are urged to review their own information which is held on NQT Manager and to delete any mentors or induction tutors who may no longer be employed by the school, or who no longer mentor any NQTs. Please bear in mind, once deleted all of that mentor's information will be deleted and should they take up the role once more their details will have to be resubmitted. All other data should be reviewed on an ongoing basis in order to ensure that it is up to date.
