Freedom of Information
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 it has been a legal requirement for all public bodies to make information available through a Publication Scheme. The Publication Scheme describes the information which is routinely produced by the College. The Scheme is set out in groups and ‘classes’, indicating the type of information published and how it can be accessed.
The Scheme’s purpose is to ensure that information is readily available to the general public. Most of this information can be accessed through the College website but also as a paper copy or sent out by email. The College uses the ‘Model Publication Scheme’ produced by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Individual members of the public have the right to ask if the information exists and to receive it. Specific requests for any information held by the College can also be made. This is subject to exemptions which are legitimately applicable, such as information covering personal data or is security or commercially sensitive.
Requests must be put in writing by email and there may be a charge for the information.
