Cookies are regulated by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

We use the following cookies on this website:

  • Google Analytics: to understand how people are using the website
  • Formidable: to enable us to save logged in users details and progress, so they can save progress, return to the site and continue the award application process. Visitors can disable these, but we then would need to complete the application process in one visit per standard/level, as progress wouldn’t be saved.

Google Analytics is classed as a performance cookie:

“These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.”

Formidable is classed as a functionality cookie:

“These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.”
