Book IconFOI learning and development for Scottish public authorities

In October 2013, we created a FOI Learning and Development (L&D) Strategic Framework 2013-2016 setting out how the Commissioner will support FOI L&D in Scottish public authorities over the next three years.

The Framework responds to evidence from an online survey into FOI L&D practice in Scotland run earlier in the year.

The survey provided clear direction from authorities on what they wanted the Commissioner to do. The Framework captures that, and will drive the Commissioner's L&D activities over the next three years.

For example, the Framework states that the Commissioner will:

  • promote the value of FOI amongst Scotland's public sector leaders
  • help authorities share their FOI resources
  • provide more self-assessment tools
  • run specialised events and explore ways to accredit learning
  • provide more guidance on the EIRs.

The specific activities we will pursue under the Framework will be described in the Commissioner's operational plans each year.
