Freedom of Information Essentials
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 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.
Now you've had a taste of FOI e-learning, why not book onto our FOI course to see how FOI is relevant to you and your council.
E-learning is not intended to replace our virtual/physical classroom training.
