The Scottish Government Education Department works with a range of partners including HM Inspectorate of Education and the SQA. On occasion, individual data is made available to partners and academic institutions to carry out research and statistical analysis. In addition, partners may be provided with information they need in order to fulfil their official responsibilities. Any sharing of data will be done under the strict control of the Scottish Government Education Department, which will ensure that no individual level data will be made public and that these data will not be used to take any actions in respect of an individual.
