The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 requires public authorities to maintain a publication scheme approved by the Scottish Information Commissioner. The purpose of the publication scheme is to provide information proactively in an easily accessible form so that it can be accessed without having to make an individual request. The College Publication Scheme sets out what classes of information the College will publish or intends to publish, how the information is made available and whether there is a fee.
All requests should be returned to the FOI officer at:
Edinburgh College - Milton Road Campus
24 Milton Road East
Since 1 January 2005, you are able to request information not contained in this Publication Scheme. If you wish to request information either contained or not contained in the Publication Scheme you should complete and return the Freedom of Information Request Form.
Accessing Personal Information
Personal information is covered by the Data Protection Act 1998 and requests for personal information will be dealt with in accordance with this act. The Subject Access provisions of the Data Protection Act gives you the right to apply to the College for any information we hold relating to you. If you wish to access personal information you should complete and return the Data Protection Access Request Form.
Your request should include a contact address, proof of identity (e.g. driving licence, passport, birth certificate) and the relevant fee (currently £10).
Feedback and Complaints
Under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 we are required to review our publication scheme to ensure that it is current and meets the needs of all users. As part of this ongoing development, we would welcome all comments on your experience of using the publication scheme and suggestions for information that we might publish in the future.
Comments and complaints should be sent on a Publication Scheme Feedback Form to the FOI Officer.
