Freedom of Information Act

An interactive and engaging online course on freedom of information act for employees.

How it works

The Freedom of Information Act give the public rights to access certain information held by public authorities, such as local or national government. This course helps public sector employees understand what a Freedom of Information (FOI) request looks like, and what to do if they receive one.

If you work in the public sector you may be asked to share certain information from time to time. You will need to be confident that you know what to do when asked to share or provide information, and what types of information you should not share.
