Practitioner Certificate in FOISA
FEEDBACK AND TESTIMONIALS
TUTOR COMMENT
"Freedom of Information training has to be practical and realistic if it is to empower FOI officers in our public sector organisations. I enjoy bringing my experience of local government, central government and the NHS to bear on the issues we discuss and share on the Act Now courses. And I relish learning from the experience and ideas of the delegates. Together we identify cost-effective ways of getting transparency right."
Read a successful delegates' experience of the course

I really enjoyed the course and thought that Tim Turner really brought the subject to life. He was an excellent tutor and made this subject both interesting and informative with amusing anecdotes throughout. I would certainly go on another course being delivered by Tim Turner and I would recommend him to my peers. LC, Glasgow Kelvin

Tim was an excellent tutor. His knowledge of the subject was vast and impressive. I learned a lot. JM, Fife Council

This is the most useful course I have participated in for a long time. JT, Crofting Commission

Tim Turner is an excellent trainer who has such a wealth of knowledge and experience of the subject, an infectious enthusiasm for FOISA and a passion for training. We were given every help and assistance Tim could provide, given that there is an exam to sit and the guidance can't be too prescriptive.

The quality of the training was first rate. The trainer had a plan, but was willing to take a tangent to address individual issues raised by participants. The course helped me immensely in my job; in terms of added knowledge, procedural aspects, and confidence that decisions and replies would bear scrutiny if examined or challenged.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Tim was excellent, very knowledgeable and adaptable. The project was a challenge, but makes you stand back and consider what FOI is all about, as well as researching on decisions, which I probably don't do enough of. The instruction on, and use of in the project, of the PIT was particularly useful for me. DM, Perth College UHI

I really enjoyed this course. It allowed me to build on my knowledge of FOISA developed 'on the job' and to understand the legislation and its application better. KF, National Galleries of Scotland

The FOISA practitioner course greatly improved my understanding of the Act and how to apply it in the course of my work. KM, Creative Scotland
