Support for Councils and Clerks

The Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA) is a nationally recognised sector-specific Level 3 qualification designed to provide local council officers with the knowledge, competence and confidence to provide professional support to their Council.   It is one of the qualifications recognised in legislation as a requirement for councils considering adoption of the General Power of Competence. 

Norfolk ALC is the only accredited CiLCA training provider in Norfolk with an agreed Service Level Agreement in place with the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC).
