Legal Surgery

Wed, 01 Jul 2020 10:00

After the success of the first legal advice surgery, Wellers Hedleys have offered to run another legal advice surgery.

Have you ever seen the words free, legal and advice in the same sentence? Well, now you have!

We have teamed up with Wellers Hedleys, part of the Wellers Law Group LLP, to offer free legal advice.

If you have any burning questions or matters that require legal advice, get in touch with us to book a 30 minute session with one of the legal advisers from Wellers Law Group, completely free of charge.

There is no need to send anything through in advance (although a brief outline of the issue would be useful) and you should bring relevant information and paperwork with you on the day.

CILCA 2020

Thu, 23 Jul 2020 10:00

Course Description
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.
