Norfolk Clerks – make 2019 your year to commit to CiLCA with Norfolk ALC

The Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA) qualification provides you with a broad knowledge of all the aspects of a clerk's work - roles and responsibilities, the law, procedures, finance planning and community involvement. It is a level 3, foundation qualification which will help you to better:

- Advise your council on its duties and powers

- Ensure your council is compliant with proper financial practices

- Help set a vision for the future for the council and community

- Advise and support your council as it identifies and implements plans for the future

Bringing benefits to both you and your council(s), it is a public recognition of your professionalism and experience in Local Council.

We have opened bookings for our next course, which starts on Wednesday 16 January 2019 at Carrowbreck House, Hellesdon. This year, we are running our course across six 3-hour sessions, each month from January to June, giving you an achievable timetable for completion of your portfolio and plenty of opportunities to connect with tutor and fellow students to help keep your motivation on target.

We know that a significant obstacle for many Councils are the costs associated with CiLCA. We are delighted to be able to provide a 50% refund of Clerk CiLCA training costs for our students, which can be arranged through Norfolk ALC, so do make sure you are booking one of our courses for Clerk CiLCA training in 2019. We will be providing further CiLCA courses later in the year, so keep an eye on our website and regular newsletters. The cost for the course is £300 + VAT before funding.

Professional Development for Norfolk's Parish and Town Clerks is an exciting new LiFT (local investment in future talent) EU funded project delivered by Norfolk ALC. The project aims to support local councils build capacity, professional standards and service resilience through the provision of reduced cost training for their Clerks and other council officers. Specifically this project:

Supports the professional development of existing clerks and helps reduce staff turnover

Enables councils to attract new applicants to the sector and commission cost-effective training to develop their knowledge and skills in the role

Enables communities in rural areas to benefit from properly resourced local (town and parish) councils with sufficiently skilled staff

Ensures local councils and councillors are better able to meet local needs through improving engagement with residents and businesses and become more adept at securing, maintaining and exploiting resources and assets for local rural economies and community benefits.
