Course Overview

This one day course starts at the point after you’ve logged the request and once you have all the information in front of you; and covers what is entitled, considerations of what is being asked for and the appropriate redaction per scenario. This course covers legal privilege, and two identical requests from different parties. Making a mistake, double checking / proof reading and buddying. The course also covers grey areas, risk and escalation and the consequences of releasing  information alongside a practical redaction and discussion. 

Who should attend?

This course is for anyone who is new to redaction and scruntiy or requires a refresher or a professional that has experience of the role. Delegates might also include Records Managers/Officers, Subject Access Request Officers, Information Governance Professionals and their deputies, Data Protection Officers or anyone working in this role. 




What our Clients said about the course

The opportunity to practice and discuss redactions, and hear from others with varied experiences. Having limited experience of FoI, the discussion of exemptions here was interesting. The course was helpful in highlighting areas which I can continue to develop my own knowledge (particularly any redactions necessary for court orders).
