The Group Board was established under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 for the purpose of operating North Hertfordshire College (NHC) and is listed in the Schedule to The Education (Further Education Corporations) Order 1992 (SI 1992 No. 2097).  The College is an exempt charity for the purposes of Part 3 of the Charities Act 2011.


The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 gives people the right to request information from organisations that receive public funds, including Further Education colleges.  The Act aims to improve transparency over how public bodies operate, why they make the decisions they do, and how they spend tax-payers’ money.


North Hertfordshire College is committed to promoting a culture of openness and accountability.  It has a duty to help you understand your rights and responsibilities under the law and to explain how they can be exercised:

  • Everyone, inside and outside the College, has a right of access to information held by North Hertfordshire College.
  • This right covers all electronic and paper records and information held by North Hertfordshire College, whether current or archived.
  • If you ask for information you believe is held by North Hertfordshire College, we must provide you with the requested information within twenty working days or explain why we cannot do so.

The Act includes exemptions that may affect whether information can be released.


We are committed to providing equal opportunities for all our students, to ensure that no one is discriminated against on the basis of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation or disability


NHC takes its responsibilities under the Disability Discrimination Act very seriously and will endeavour to ensure that people with disabilities are given equal opportunities in respect of all College services and facilities. The College will ensure that every reasonable effort is made to improve access for visitors and the general public to buildings, facilities and information.
