Data Acces Panel
The Head of the Division has the responsibility to act as an ‘Information Asset Owner’ of the data held by Education Analytical Services (EAS) Division. As such, their role is to facilitate the sharing of the education data and ensure that this is done in-line with the legal and privacy obligations defined by the Data Protection Act 1998 to ensure and maintain individuals' privacy.
In recognition of the need to provide a consistent and effective approach to data sharing, the EAS Data Access Panel was created in 2013 to provide advice and support to the Head of the Division in fulfilling this role.
The EAS Data Access Panel is formed by the Head of the Division, the Divisional Data Access Officer, and senior officials from EAS Division, the Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) and the Office of the Chief Statisticians and Strategic Analysis (OCSSA).
Secretariat responsibilities to the EAS Data Access Panel are held by the ScotXed Unit. E-mail: ASUSchools.Data.Access@gov.scot
