The Staff Individualised Record (SIR) system records standardised details of all staff employed in the FE sector during the past academic year. The system provides management reporting and benchmarking facilities.The data collection facility for this year is known as SIR27 and is available via this site.
In line with the UK Data Protection Act 1998, the Foundation follows strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which providers submit on behalf of staff as part of the submission of the SIR. We will only use the information provided as stated below. We may share your provider data with a third party under the condition that they will only report on the data at an aggregated level. If you have any questions regarding how we use your organisational data, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want the information on this site to be open as possible, whilst respecting providers’ ownership of their data. When you submit SIR returns via this site we will ask you to create a provider admin login for your organisation. If you previously submitted SIR returns, we will use your data contact as the provider admin in the first instance. That provider admin will be responsible for the data submitted on behalf of your provider, and they can create additional provider level account/s to view, edit and input your data. If we receive contact from others in your provider wishing to access data, we will direct them to your provider admin.
