Freedom of Information
Freedom of Information (FOI) Act Training Courses
Our Freedom of Information courses are available as part of the Compliance eLearning Suite in one great package.
Freedom of Information Training Courses
Our Freedom of Information training course is designed to prepare employees to deal with FOI requests by allowing users to experience and handle requests in a number of different scenarios. By encouraging a deep understanding of the Act, FOI training will equip employees with enough knowledge about other legislation concerning privacy laws to prevent other privacy breaches from occurring too.
Using our eLearning is a great way to deliver FOI training. The course is developed in conjunction with subject experts and updated to reflect any change in legislation. Our courses maximise learner engagement and knowledge retention by utilising the latest techniques in eLearning such as using games, challenges, quizzes and real-life scenarios.
All of our courses feature clean, modern design so not only do learners gain the requisite knowledge from our courses but also enjoy the experience, which is not always something that can be said of more traditional eLearning methods.
Our Freedom of Information training course is available off-the-shelf for ease of use; we can also work with your subject experts to tailor the approach and information to suit your organisation's requirements. Using the Adapt Authoring Tool you can even modify our courses yourself.
What is the Freedom of Information Act?
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 refers to information recorded and held by public authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and by UK-wide public authorities based in Scotland. Since the act refers to information held in electronic files, paper files, letters, emails, photographs, and sound recordings, the principles laid out in the freedom of information (FOI) Act can be applied as best practice for all types of organisations – no matter where they're based.
Public authorities include government departments, local authorities, the NHS, state schools and the police force. However, it's important to remember that FOI regulations don't necessarily cover every organisation that receives public money. For example, it does not cover charities or private sector organisations that receive funding from the government to carry out particular functions.
The Freedom of Information Act legislation works in corresponding ways: on the one hand, it asserts that public authorities must publish certain information about themselves and make it available for public consumption, and, on the other, it directs that members of the public are entitled to request and access information from public authorities. It is important to remember, however, that the Act does not entitle members of the public to access their own personal data; this information is subject to Data Protection and information security regulation instead.
