How your privacy is protected

At all stages of data collation, processing, storage and reporting for the ATWD, the privacy of individuals is protected. Personal data will be removed by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) and only de-identified data is included in the ATWD. Reporting from the ATWD will look at aggregate workforce trends, not individual teachers, so teachers will be anonymous.

The AIHW, an accredited data integration authority, has been appointed to manage the data collation, linkage, storage and data access process. This ensures that ATWD data will remain safe and secure. More information about the AIHW is available on their webpage.

The ATWD Oversight Board provides governance on all aspects of the ATWD and includes representatives from across the education sector.
