Classes may be discontinued or amalgamated if attendance numbers fall below a set minimum. Photocopiers Photocopiers are available for student use in college libraries, as well as at other locations in some colleges. You can pay for photocopying by crediting your TAFEcard with funds and using it in the photocopy machine card readers. To credit your TAFEcard with funds please ask for directions at your local campus library or customer service office. Please remember that there are copyright restrictions on photocopying. More information is available from library staff. Privacy (Information access) The Government Information (Public Access) Act (GIPA) 2009 (NSW) replaced the Freedom of Information Act 1989 (NSW) on 1 July 2010. It established a comprehensive system for public access to government information. The GIPA Act gives you the right to request access to documents held by most government agencies, including TAFE NSW. Some documents may be informally available others will require a formal application to be made. For more information call the Department's FOI Unit Information Access Unit on (02) 9561 8100 or visit www.dec.nsw.gov.au/about-us/ information-access Protection of children and young people TAFE NSW policy promotes the protection of children and young people from physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect. TAFE NSW employees are required, by law and/or by Departmental policy, to report to the NSW Department of Family and Community Services cases where children and young people are suspected to be at risk of harm. This policy may apply to: • students under 18 years of age who are enrolled in TAFE NSW courses • children and young people who are accessing TAFE NSW services (eg counsellors, libraries) • children enrolled in TAFE NSW child care centres • minors who are accompanying their parent/ carer/advocate on TAFE NSW premises or at an external TAFE NSW activity. A Prohibited Employment Declaration must be signed by students in courses where contact will be made with children and young people. Your teacher will give you more information about this. Public transport All colleges are accessible by public transport. Information and contact telephone numbers are included in this Student Guide (see pages 42-63) or go to the Transport Infoline website www.131500.com.au . Detailed information about services and timetables is also available at the college customer service office.
