The Thriving Lives CPD Event Series is an Online CPD series for teachers and school / college staff or professionals working with young people from Armed Forces families.

LiNCHigher and the SCiP (Service Children's Progression) Alliance are delighted to invite you to attend our online CPD event series for teachers and school or college staff. The series has been created to support educational professionals in helping Service children in education settings.

We will be delivering 6 online events taking place on Zoom during November and December 2021. Each of the interactive sessions will be hosted by an industry representative, experienced in either working with young people from Armed Forces backgrounds or for the wellbeing of children and young people.

The purpose of the Thriving Lives event series is to provide you with information and to share knowledge. Throughout the series, we will bring together the perspective of practitioners and students from Armed Forces communities in line with the Widening Participation national agenda and specifically how this applies to your role at your school, college or organisation.

By participating in this event series, we hope that you will gain a deeper understanding at a strategic level of the key issues affecting Service children's outcomes and wellbeing, reflect on your practice and plan actions for your setting.

All attendees will be entered into a prize draw to win an RAF Experience Day at a local RAF base for a year group of their students.

The series begins with an introductory session on 10th November, facilitated by Katherine Lawrence, Head of Operations of the SCiP Alliance. We recommend that all event series participants attend this session. This interactive session will explore the lives of Service children, how the SCiP Alliance helps and how schools can use the Thriving Lives Toolkit to help Service children thrive. The deadline for booking for all sessions is Wednesday 3rd November.

After the introductory session, 5 CPD sessions will be delivered by industry representatives, experienced in either working with young people from Armed Forces backgrounds or with the wellbeing of children and young people.

Thriving Lives Event Series Privacy Notice

In line with recent emails sent to you during August this year, LiNCHigher and the SCiP Alliance, based at The University of Winchester are inviting you to register to attend our Thriving Lives event series. We are delivering 6 online events taking place over the Zoom platform during November and December 2021. The purpose of the Thriving Lives series is to provide you with information and share knowledge. We will bring together the perspective of practitioners and students from Armed Forces communities in line with the Widening Participation national agenda and specifically how this applies to your role at your college or school.

In order to administer and deliver this event, LiNCHigher needs to collect your attendee data electronically. Attendee data consists of your school or college, your name, job title, email address and a contact phone number as well as details of which sessions you attend. It may also include any written submissions such as questions you may ask within the chat function, or submissions of topic contributions for a particular workshop.

The series of Thriving Lives workshops will be recorded which allows us to make the event available to a wider audience. You will be reminded that recording is taking place upon registration, event reminder emails and on the day. The use of cameras and microphones is optional for all workshops however we recommend turning them on at specific periods of interaction. You can still attend the workshops if you do not want your image or voice to be captured.

We ask that all attendees agree they will not discuss identifiable pupils or families during the sessions. Please express your working examples generically so that no families or persons could be identified. We have a range of attendees from different regions and have a duty to respect and protect confidential information about our Armed forces families and other service users.

Attendee data: LiNCHigher will use this to inform future practice and support needed across our county, Lincolnshire. This is collected on the following lawful bases, in accordance with UK Data Protection legislation:

  • It is in our legitimate Interests to administer and deliver online event sessions effectively and provide you with content and Continued Professional Development in this area.
  • Public Task – we have a basis in law and Education regulation upon which we run these types of events
  • Consent – we would also like to ask for your consent to process your attendee data in certain ways. Consent is not a condition of attendance; the above may apply to some aspects of our processing.

What will happen with your attendee data?

Firstly, LiNCHigher would like to share it securely, with the SCiP Alliance team at The University of Winchester for the same purposes outlined above. Secondly, LiNCHigher will upload it to the HEAT database (the Higher Education Access Tracker, provided by the University of Kent and used by LiNCHigher). The HEAT database is used by member organisations to record participant details and their involvement in Widening Participation (WP) activities. LiNCHigher has a Data Sharing Agreement and contract with HEAT that safeguards processing of personal data.

Thirdly, we would like to ask you to complete an optional post-event survey. Live event polls will be conducted and a survey link shared via Zoom. Results will be anonymous to attendees. Only relevant staff at LiNCHigher will receive a report of individual responses linked to your identity. LiNCHigher will share anonymous poll and survey results with the SCiP Alliance team at The University of Winchester. Both parties will use the results to inform future practice and support needed across the country.

We would like to send you relevant information in future from LiNCHigher and the SCiP Alliance. This is optional and we will only do so with your consent. You can opt-out at any time.

Your data will not be shared outside of the UK but we would like to refer you to Zoom’s privacy policy which includes details of their international server and data centre locations: https://zoom.us/privacy Your details including event recordings, will be deleted from the Zoom platform no later than two weeks after the event.

Access to attendee data will be restricted at all times to staff in relevant roles at both organisations and at HEAT.

Secure sharing of personal data (about identifiable attendees) will only take place in accordance with the parameters of a specific Data Sharing Agreement between both organisations, that has been established for this event and helps to safeguard all individuals.
