The EssentialSkillz Freedom of Information (FOI) Online Training Course explains all of the important aspects of the Freedom of Information Act UK 2000. The FOI training course is written to be equally useful for the general public, private organisation and for the public authorities covered by the act.
The Act is designed to encourage and enforce greater openness and transparency from public authorities. Improved openness should lead to increased public trust in public authorities. Increased transparency should decrease the instances of fraud, corruption and malpractice in public authorities.
The Act allows anyone to request information from public authorities. The course outlines how to submit a Freedom of Information request, it describes how a public authority has to respond to a request and details the cases in which a public authority can refuse to disclose request information.
Finally, the FOI training course summarises how a public authority can comply with the obligation to proactively and routinely publish information to the general public.
