The six sessions make up the full training course and are designed to support your portfolio submission by instalment or at the end of the course.

This training course will take you through each of the 30 learning outcomes. It will also explain how to compile your portfolio, involve your Council, and strengthen your knowledge as a practitioner.

For this year only, eligible Clerks across Norfolk will qualify for a 50% reduction in both our tuition/ support fees of £300 and the SLCC registration fees of £350. This will brings the cost down from £650 to £325. Non-members of the Norfolk Association may still qualify for a discount, but please contact us to discuss.
