This guidance is out of date. Please fill in the service request form if you wish to request access to the data collection forum.

A guide for users of the Education Data Division (EDD) data collection forum.



This guide explains how to access and use an online forum about the data collections managed by the department’s Education Data Division (EDD). The forum allows local authority contacts and representatives from non-maintained establishments (academies, free schools, university technical colleges, studio schools, non-maintained special schools and independent schools) to exchange ideas and good practice relating to data collections and related EDD systems.

Initially EDD will trial the forum on the autumn 2013 school census.
