CES privacy statement students
How we use your data
The Careers and Employability Service (CES) will write a summary of our interactions with you. This can include information such as your career ideas, plans for your next steps and any feedback given on CVs/applications/mock interviews etc.
This information is accessible to staff within the CES and recording it in writing allows advisers to prepare for any subsequent interactions with you so that you can receive tailored information, advice and guidance.
There are some instances where this information may be made available to staff in professional services and academic schools at the University of Kent, where pertinent to their roles (unless you request otherwise). If you are looking for a work placement as part of your course then the notes we hold will be transferred to the Placement Management System providing academic school placement staff with details of the support you have accessed. We also send details of your workshop attendance to Kent Innovation and Enterprise so that your Employability Points can be logged.
Client records are kept to enable consistent and appropriate guidance to be offered to clients by the adviser who is engaging with them, whether in the CES, another professional service or an academic school at the University of Kent. Your information will not be shared with employers or other external organisations.
The CES shall ensure that all personal data gathered from clients is handled in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 as required by the University www.kent.ac.uk/infocompliance
