Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 came into effect on 1 January 2005. The Act gives everyone the right to ask for official information from public organisations, which includes colleges. The kind of information requested includes things like how well the college is performing, how the college makes decisions and how the college spends public money.

Click on this link to our Freedom of Information Publication Scheme for a detailed list of the categories under which you can make requests for information. Some information is exempt under the Act.

Freedom of Information Publication Scheme

The College has an FOI Publication Scheme which relates to our published information. This means, some information has already been prepared in a format ready for distribution unless adaptations are required in relation to the Equality Act. All documents will be supplied electronically unless “paper only” is stated. Some fees may be charged for supplying the information.

Main Categories

Requests for information should come under the main categories listed below.

  • What we are and what we do?
  • What we spend and how we spend it?
  • What our priorities are and how well we are doing?
  • How we make decisions?
  • Our policies and procedures
  • Lists and registers
  • The services we offer.

Requests for information must be supplied to you by us, unless any of the exemptions for information under the Act apply.

How to request information

If you cannot find the information you need on our website, please write in to tell us what it is that you want to know. The College will respond within 20 working days. Where additional work is required to respond to a request, a fee may be charged which will be calculated according to Fee Regulations.

If the information requested comes under one of the exemptions of the Act, then we will explain to you why we are not releasing the information and we may also have to justify this to the Information Commissioner.
