Top CiLCA marks for Norfolk Clerks

Our CilCA students have been taking advantage of the current lock-down to complete their portfolios and upload to EMMA and they are now claiming just reward for their efforts. During the last few days, the following Norfolk Clerks have attained their qualification.

Helen Richardson; Parish Clerk and RFO to Stoke Ferry Parish Council, Wereham Parish Council and Southery Parish Council.

Helen began her studies with Norfolk ALC in July 2019. She approached her portfolio with a regular study routine, completing learning outcomes, unit by unit in sync with her 6-session course. It was an approach that worked for her, she said: "I had put it off all those years really as I just didn't think I could physically fit the time in, pleased to be passed it all, all the evenings and weekends working has paid off. All my PC's have offered superb support throughout, and on the whole, I have managed to keep my workload going and fit this into my usual hours so cost to them has been minimal too."

Mike Inder; Parish Clerk and RFO to Boughton Parish Council, Shouldham Parish Council and Wiggenhall St Germans Parish Council.

Mike also began his studies with us on our July 2019 course. He took a similar approach, keeping on top of his learning outcomes alongside each session of our course. Mike has another reason to be proud of his qualification as he is only just a year into his new career as a Clerk; "it has been an excellent experience and I feel far more confident in only year in the sector……I'm not going to pretend this has been easy! I've been doing more learning than proving knowledge... your sessions have steered me in the right direction without spoon feeding".

Wendy Benson; Parish Clerk and RFO to Roydon (Diss) Parish Council.

Wendy began her CiLCA studies only eight months ago, when she joined our October 2019 course. Again, Wendy's approach was to tackle each unit as it was covered within our course, allowing her to complete her entire CiLCA journey in eight months. This certainly is not an easy route, it takes focus and strong self-management, but as they say, were there is a will there is a way. Wendy reflected on her experience, "Taking this qualification has helped my enormously in my role, making me more confident in ensuring the council is run efficiently and adheres to legislation."

Our next CiLCA training course begins in September and will be held via Zoom, making it easier than ever to study. Visit the Calendar for more details and to book.
