Online - Freedom of Information Act 2000 A-Z Guide
The course is aimed at those people who have little or no experience of dealing with Freedom of Information Act requests. It may also be useful for people who are tasked with supervising or administering freedom of information practitioners and wish to have a better understanding of the provisions of the Act.

The course provides an overview of how the Freedom of Information Act places legal obligations on public authorities to make information available to the public via publication schemes and in response to information requests. The course focusses on the practical aspects of dealing with information requests, including identifying valid requests, assisting applicants, and meeting statutory deadlines. It also considers when request may be refused because the cost of dealing with the request exceeds the upper cost limit or where a request is vexatious or repeated. The course also examines Part2 of the Act that provides the exemptions that public authorities may be able to rely on to refuse requests. The focus is on the exemptions that are the most used. In addition the course will explain what steps a public authority must take when it decides to refuse a request, and the subsequent complaints and appeals procedure.
