Course Description

The Act Now Practitioner Certificate in Freedom of Information (Scotland) is designed for FOISA practitioners in the public sector as well as solicitors, auditors and others with a role dealing with FOISA and EI(S)R requests, advising on information or records management issues, and anyone else who has responsibility for managing and dealing with public sector information requests.

The course is certificated by the Centre for FOI. Professor Kevin Dunion is Executive Director of the Centre. He was previously the Scottish Information Commissioner.

The course takes place over four days (one day per week) and involves lectures, assessments and exercises. This is followed by some online sessions and a written exam. Candidates are then required to complete a project to achieve the certificate.

Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate that they possess a good knowledge of Freedom of Information and other information laws as they apply in Scotland, as well as an understanding of the practical implications for their organisation.
