Are you looking to take a step into Freedom of Information (FOI)? Do you want to gain an understanding of the Freedom of Information Act?
If so, then take this one-day course. You’ll learn how to demonstrate a basic level of application and knowledge of the Act, and how to respond to FOI requests. It’s ideal for those wanting to enhance their knowledge of FOI within their organisation, at a level that gives you an understanding of the FOI Act, and apply it to your work. You’ll also learn how specific exemptions might apply to FOI requests, as well as the legal and regulatory frameworks that govern it. Completing this course will give those with no prior training or experience the knowledge to go on and complete the BCS Practitioner Certificate in FOI.
The course is also interactive, so you will be encouraged to ask questions throughout, and can share your real-world experiences with other attendees, discussing issues and ideas to help them within their role. You’ll also talk through real-life practice scenarios to aid with your learning, giving you a proper hands-on approach.
When you train with us at DPAS, you’ll get more than just the training. We’ll provide you with free policies, templates, and tools – after the course has concluded. We will also supply you with the relevant resources to help you throughout.
