Being able to access information held by public authorities is an important right in an open society.
The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act gives a structure to the way information is accessed and disclosed in the public domain. Public authorities have to adhere to the Act and publish information correctly and deal with requests for information as outlined in the Act.
This highly interactive course effectively demonstrates the provisions of the FOI act using engaging case studies throughout. Both publishing information and requests for information are explained and discussed in-depth with examples and detailed case studies. A CPD certificate will be issued on successful completion of the course.
Employees at public authorities and other organisations working with information that falls under the Freedom of Information Act, all relevant employees, anyone with an interest or requires further knowledge.
