Dear Sir,
The English Higher class has been postponed because of circumstances out
with the college's control. No places have been made available, nor have
we accepted anyone on to the course. We do not have a start date at
present because of the postponement.  Places are allocated on the basis of
applicants having the necessary literacy skills or qualifications to enter
the course.  The number of applications made prior to the postponement
stands at 21.
 
Yours sincerely
David Killean

Dear DKILLEAN,

I have come to be informed by a collage staff member that the course has now proceeded, therefor I would ask that the FOIS request be internally reviwed to this date (24 Sept 2012)

Yours sincerely,

Oysterman

Dear Mr [Name removed],
I understand that you were in contact with our evening class supervisor
last night who will write to you to explain why you were not successful in
securing a place on this year's Higher English evening class.  I have
asked her to do this as a matter of importance.
 
Yours sincerely

Dear DKILLEAN,

I note the response given is inappropriate to the internal review required of the collage by the law. I also note that the reply broke my data protection rights. I have asked and thank the site ’WhatDoTheyKnow’ for removing my name of which the collage divulged without my permission, however I have taken a copy of the illegal response for legal purposes. Please answer the questions originally put to the collage in line with both the act and the procedures proscribed to the respondent for conducting an internal review now relevant to this time.

If you wish me to clarify please let me know, but at all times on this site please refer to me as Oysterman.

Thank you.

The respondent wrote to me to inform me that there were 20 places allocated to the public and 21 applications from the public were received. All had the required qualification and one was rejected when they implemented a policy of favouring the applicants with the most grades in OTHER areas in order to select the one who would do without. I have initiated the official complaints process and my complaint has been upheld at level one on grounds that the procedure they employed was on advertised nor explained and an offer made for next year to have a secured placement was given to me. This has not been rejected but not accepted at this moment as I have asked the complaint to be investigated further in accordance to level 2 of there procedure. The complaint was initiated and is being investigated on ground of disability discrimination and other matters not for public disclosure at this time while the investigation is on going. The course started in late September. For the purposes of this site I consider this partially successful.
