Next training Thursday Oct 4th 2007

I’ll be doing a day-long course at the National Union of Journalists on Thursday October 4th 2007. The course is open to anyone but space is limited so if you’d like to attend please book either on the NUJ’s training website or by phoning their office on 020 7843 3700.

The day runs from 10am to about 5pm during which time I’ll discuss how to access official information using the Freedom of Information Act, Environmental Information Regulations, Data Protection Act and other access laws. I also discuss tactics for making requests and strategies for countering refusal, obstruction and downright unhelpfulness from public servants. I also provide a primer on uncovering existing information hidden away on various government websites.

    Love the blog.

    Would also love to attend the training but live in Bristol, and will be working that day. I run an advice agency (like a Citizens Advice, but smaller) and am starting to use FoI in my arguments on behalf of clients with the local council. I know it’s cheeky, but would you have any course materials that I could have a look at?
