CiLCA Training - Session Three

9.30am-12.30pm
Carrowbreck House, Hellesdon

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.

CiLCA is a Level 3 qualification for local council Clerks and other officers, assessed through submission of an extensive portfolio of evidence. It is also a requirement for the purposes of the Local Council Award Scheme (Quality and Quality Gold) and eligibility for the council to use the general power of competence.

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.

This workshop will cover:

• Benefits of Appraisals & potential pitfalls

• Potential Pitfalls

• Setting out the Agenda and use of Appraisal forms – choice of appraisal forms.

• Preparing the Environment – ensuring that it is conducive to an effective Appraisal

• Conducting the meeting – questioning skills

• Giving Feedback

• Action Planning – ensuring that it is effective and will be implemented.

• Informing the Council of the Outcome and Action Plan – what should remain confidential.

Chris has been working with Local Councils for several years and is best placed to fully appreciate the challenges of good HR in our sector. This course is strongly recommended for Councillors and Officers who have responsibilities for personnel and people management.
