"The chief officer of a council serving a community of any size is a professional employee requiring management, organisational and communication skills and an understanding of the law, administrative procedures, the planning system, financial management and community engagement."

The Certificate in Local Council Administration, is a professional qualification for Town and Parish Council Clerks that is specifically designed to demonstrate the occupational standards needed to fulfil the role of a local council Clerk.
We are the County's recognised CiLCA Trainer and we deliver training to support the development of your portfolio for CiLCA. We are looking ahead to 2020 with a plan for more course dates. We also provide a one-to-one tuition support for those Clerks who struggle to commit to day-time courses. Feedback from one of our 'distance learners': "This type of learning was of great benefit to me and a way I prefer to study…..not attending workshops meant that I needed to undertake deeper research into questions, thereby gaining a greater depth of knowledge and being able to retain it….I especially like the freedom to work at my own pace."
Cost is a serious consideration with any professional development and we are delighted to be able to continue to provide financial assistance through match-funding for both the training AND the registration fees associated with CiLCA, bringing the costs down by 50%. This funding is only available through us, the County Association.
