CiLCA Portfolio Training

Registrations are closed

CiLCA is the standard qualification for the sector, available to all local council sector staff and councillors.  The qualification provides a broad knowledge of all the aspects of a clerk's work including roles and responsibilities, the law, procedures, finance, planning and community involvement. 

CiLCA has been tailored to meet the occupational standards for clerks and chief officers of local council, approved in 2012 following consultation across the sector.  

Ascentis, the awarding body, recommends that you attend training to assist you in completing your qualification.  The aim of the training is to help you to build your portfolio by understanding the evidence required for the CiLCA qualification.   

The fee of £350 covers attendance at four training events which will cover the 5 CiLCA modules, these are a mix of in-person and virtual via Zoom.
