Managing establishment transfers

Staff moving establishments between:

* Same local authority

When a staff member (teaching and non-teaching) transfers from one establishment to another in SEEMIS, their Glow user account moves with them allowing continuous access to stored content.

* Different local authorities

When a staff member (teaching and non-teaching) transfers from one establishment to another in a different local authority their account does not move with them. They will get a new Glow account and no longer have access to their old content, ensuring full compliance with GDPR.

Pupils moving establishments:

Pupils moving in to an establishment in the same local authority or a new local authority will have their accounts matched so that they can preserve access to stored content.

Watch the following video to find out how to manage establishment transfers. Further details are available on pages 3-7 of the Glow Administrator User Guide

Most transfers are carried out automatically, except where SEEMIS records have not been updated. For example, if a user leaves School A to move to School B, but School A doesn’t put a leaving date in the user’s account, the account will not be able to leave School A. Alternatively, if School B does not create a new user record with a start date, the account from School A will have nowhere to go.
