The Information Standards Board (ISB) for education, skills and children’s services is the overarching authority and governing body for the management and assurance of data and information standards in these sectors. It is jointly sponsored by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and Department for Education.
The use of information standards across these sectors will reduce processing costs at point of collection and publication. This will benefit children and learners as less will be spent on bureaucracy. Standards also help analysts and software designers to utilise data more efficiently and effectively.
