About the Publication Scheme
As part of our obligations under the Freedom of Information Act, we produce a Publication Scheme which details the types of information we routinely provide to the public and how the public may access the information. It includes things like what New City College does, what it spends money on etc.
The purpose of the Publication Scheme is to assist the public in finding information held by public bodies and remove the requirement to make a formal request under the Freedom of Information Act.
The Scheme is based upon the model publication scheme developed by the Information Commissioner and adopted by all public sector organisations from 1 January 2009.
As part of the model, public bodies must produce a guide to the specific information they hold and which is contained within any of the scheme’s seven classes. This document is intended to serve as that guide.
Access to our Publication Scheme is made without charge. We do however reserve the right to charge a fee for providing access to any of the information within each class, particularly if a large amount of hardcopy information is requested.
