The College’s Mission Statement is "To provide inspirational, high quality education and training which meets the needs of individuals, employers and our wider communities". The purpose of this Policy is to ensure that all students are considered for courses and/or training on a consistent basis and can access high quality and impartial information, advice and guidance as appropriate.
Freedom of Information Act
It is a legal requirement under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 for all public bodies to have information available through a Publication Scheme. The Scheme describes the information routinely published by the College. It is set out in groups and 'classes', which indicate the type of information published and how this can be accessed.
The purpose of the Scheme is to ensure that information is readily available to the general public. The College is using the Model Publication Scheme for Further Education Colleges approved by the Information Commissioner. Individuals have the right to ask if the information exists and to receive it, subject to exemptions which are legitimately applicable such as information covering personal data, security or commercial sensitivity. Requests must be put in writing. There may be a charge for the information.
