This is the accredited certificate for the Local Council Sector, designed to test basic levels of competence for the role of parish clerk. The syllabus has been designed to cover all aspects of the clerk's role and candidates are required to compile a portfolio of evidence to show they fully understand their job. Having completed the training you can then compile the portfolio of evidence that you submit in order to gain the Certificate.
Who should attend?
Anyone can undertake the Certificate in Local Council Administration. Although it is has been designed for parish and town clerks, it can be undertaken by assistant clerks, aspiring clerks, councillors or any other person interested in local council administration. All you need is access to a helpful parish council and access to information, and guidance from NCALC on how to compile your portfolio of evidence.
There are no entry requirements but it would be helpful if you were working for a parish or town council (either as a clerk or an assistant clerk), as you will need access to documents for your portfolio. It is possible for 'prospective' clerks to apply for the certificate.
CiLCA is an accreditation attached to the candidate, not the council. Although this accreditation has been designed for clerks, there is nothing to stop elected members registering, undertaking the training and compiling a portfolio of evidence.
