Training and Consultancy in Data Protection, Freedom of Information and Surveillance Law
BCS Certified Courses

My Act Now Data Protection course got me more than just a certificate. The course has given me a wealth of knowledge of Data Protection, in general, and more confidence in my current role. My trainer, Phil, has a strong background in law, and is extremely experienced in the application of the Data Protection Act. The course leaves you well prepared for the exam, but by no means do they simply train you up to pass. They teach you everything you need to know so that you will pass! Suffice to say, I would recommend it to any Data Protection practitioner. SB, Greater Manchester Police

Excellent trainer and knowledge, enthusiastic on the subject. Well versed on new cases and up to date matters.NS, Leeds City Council

Tim's background means that throughout the course you get real-life examples reflecting those in the workplace. Even if you don't do the exam, the course will improve your knowledge of FOI hugely. I would recommend this course.SB, Northern Lighthouse Board

The course was excellent and really sets you up for the exam, I would recommend it to others working in the field. I have put what I learned on the course to good use as I am a FOI and DPA Manager in a very busy post with lots of business each and every day; many of the requests are unusual. The course and now passing the exam has given me the confidence to do my job. JH, NI Courts and Tribunals Service

[Paul] I wanted to thank you for your excellent ISEB Data Protection Course in London. I was hugely relieved to pass. While it's good to have the certificate, I have found your course to be of enormous value to me in my new information governance role. AH, Hampshire County Council

Just like to thank you for all the help you gave me and all the other candidates. The course was very clear and easy to follow. I will definitely be referring people to take the ISEB's and other courses with Act Now, as I've always found you most informative, on all subjects. PR, Birmingham City Council

Thank you for a great course - as always all the trainers at Act Now are extremely knowledgeable, approachable and make the learning experience really enjoyable.KF, St Helens Council

I would like to say thank you to Act Now and Ibrahim in particular, for a brilliant course. I have now completed the DPA and FOI ISEB certificates with Act Now and have enjoyed both of them very much (even though hard work was involved in both!). The course was just ideal for me, starting at 10am and finishing at 4.30pm. I liked the venue and the lunches were lovely!. I feel much more informed now on all FOI/DPA related matters. Please could you pass on my thanks to everyone involved. I hope to be able to take part in your courses in the future.JB, Anglia Ruskin University

Many thanks to Paul for his coaching and guidance.VG, Southampton City Council

Massive thanks to Ibrahim for all his hard work and the comprehensive programme he teaches! DD, London Borough of Ealing

Great course!AS, London Borough of Islington

I have really enjoyed this course [FOI] and would recommend to anyone who manages FOI for their organisation. KM, Hackney Homes

Great tutor and course
KA, London Borough of Ealing

[I] would recommend to anyone who works in FOI. [I] have learnt so much.SW, Natural England

I would like to say that i thoroughly enjoyed the course and even after being a Data Protection Officer for several years I felt that the course emphasis was good and that I learned about areas of Data Protection that i was not so familiar with. I particularly enjoyed learning about various implications for DP arising from other recent and proposed legislation.Douglas Stephen, Edinburgh Council

I thoroughly enjoyed completing the ISEB in Data Protection. The trainer (Tim) and Actnow offered every level of support needed. The homework questions that Actnow provided were a particularly valuable and essential resource needed to pass the exam. Sarah Brien, Oldham MBC

The ISEB course was run perfectly, ..., I am very pleased that I chose to attend the Act Now ISEB course instead of another training provider. The format, the materials provided, the homework and mock exam as well as the excellent trainer, Paul Simpkins, ensured that I had the skills and knowledge to pass the exam. I would recommend Act Now training to anyone considering attending any information legislation courses.Alice Wilson, Scottish Government

The ISEB DP course was made entertaining and enjoyable by Tim's teaching style. Very approachable & knowledgeable on the subject matter.Kathy Fleming, St Helens Council

The course was well structured, with good pace and plenty of chance for delegates to discuss and explore the issues raised. While the closed-book exam approach does not reflect the "real world" application of the Act, the preparation provided by Act Now throughout was excellent. Highly recommended!Iain Harrison, Coventry City Council

The course was very well structured and well timed. The length of the course was ideal as this gave sufficient time to discuss all areas relating to FOI and also gave candidates ample time for discussion and study. The trainer was very supportive and the knowledge that has been imparted has enabled me to develop the FOI function with our organisation. Highly Recommended.Joanne Wilson, Heywood Middleton and Rochdale NHS

I'd just like to state that I enjoyed the course, found it informative and a great help in relation to my FOI Officer functions. You were very supportive in all aspects of the course and the course was also a good opportunity to meet fellow FOI Officers and discuss work related issue.Anthony Fitzpatrick, MerseyTravel

A well-structured and well-timed course. The course itself and the knowledge of the trainer have really helped me to improve my knowledge and understanding of the Freedom of Information Act and will be extremely useful to me in my job at the Council.EZ, Peterborough City Council

Ibrahim made studying for the ISEB FOI qualification interesting, the duration and speed of the course was good and I passed the exam first time, so I would definitely recommend this course to others.Michelle Emmens, Suffolk Coastal DC
