Under the Freedom of Information Act, all individuals have a general right of access to information that is held by public authorities.
Plymouth College of Art is committed to openness in relation to its staff and students and also to the general public. Subject to the exemptions provided in the Act, anyone who makes a request for information will be informed whether the College holds the information requested and, if it does, the College will either supply the information or advise where that information can be found (e.g. on the website). If another public authority already publishes the information requested, we will inform you how you can access the information.
The Freedom of Information Act requires the College, as a public authority, to adopt and maintain a publication scheme.
A publication scheme is a guide to the information that the College is committed to publishing. This scheme follows the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) Definition Document for Universities and Higher Education Institutions and so it sets out the types of documents/information available and how we publish the different items of information.
