This intermediate level course is designed for those who are responsible for managing the disposal of information and records with their local authority.

The course explores all the basics of disposing of information and records management across both the physical, and digital environments. It also covers the processes involved in disposal, the legal requirements and how to utilise the ALGIM Disposal Schedule.

The course is divided into four modules of 90 minutes each. Each module is delivered online with its own workbook which is sent out to participants beforehand. There is also a small amount of homework to be done between modules to support learning.
