Information Governance and Assurance

Information is a vital asset for the provision of services to learners or staff and assists in the effective management of Group resources. It plays a key part in governance service planning and delivery as well as performance management.

Information Governance and Assurance (IGA) is concerned with how content is collected, recorded, used, shared, held and destroyed.

Content (including shared content) is a collective term for documents, data and records (electronic and paper).

It is essential that the Group has a functional information governance framework to ensure that content, and particularly content of a special category nature, is effectively managed with accountability structures, processes, documented policies and procedures, staff training and appropriate resources to deliver a robust service to the data subjects with whom we collect and process content.
