This course has now taken place.

Having an effective records management system in place is not only essential to the smooth running of an organisation, but also a statutory duty for many public authorities in Scotland.

Being subject to the Public Records (Scotland) Act as well as Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act, authorities are required to put in place a Records Management Plan (RMP) approved by the Keeper of the Records of Scotland.

Attend this course to gain actionable strategies for transferring to and managing digital records. Leave the day fully equipped with the knowledge and confidence to excel in all areas of records and information management.
