New Training – May 12, 2006

I’ll be running a course at the National Union of Journalists 12 May 2006 from 10am-4.30pm at the NUJ headquarters in London. The course covers all aspects of the Freedom of Information Act and Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) with particular emphasis on making the laws work for you in practice. I’ll suggest advice on the best way to forumulate requests based on my own, and other journalists’, experience.

The course is tailored for journalists (both local and national) but anyone with an interest in FOI is welcome. There will be a recap on the laws in practice and their enforcement and tips for overcoming the most common reasons for rejection: commercial confidentiality, data protection and policy formation. By the time you finish the course you should have at least two access requests ready to send out.

I hope to see some of you there!
