Events & Training

Norfolk ALC are pleased to work with parish and communities by delivering training and holding events in local venues.


Norfolk ALC has been awarded EU funding under the Local Investment in Future Talent funding programme for Norfolk and North Suffolk. This enables us to provide deliver improved as well as reduced cost clerk training over the period to December 2019.

Gabbie Joyce, who many of you will know as an experienced clerk here in Norfolk, has already been employed to roll this out locally.

Benefits for clerks can include reduced cost CiLCA training over this period, so if the cost of such training has been a barrier for you or your council, and you've especially wanted to achieve this clerk qualification, please contact us about what we will be able to offer.

We will be looking to speak further with many of you around the county this coming month to ensure that we best use this welcome extra funding to meet your particular requirements.
