This two part course is for Clerks intending to submit their CiLCA Portfolio. This is one of the two professional qualifications which a Clerk can attain and forms part of the requirements for the Local Council Award Scheme. This course goes through the portfolio giving guidance on how to fulfil the requirements for individual Clerks to gain their certificates.

A tripartite Learning Agreement, signed by candidates, their employing council and CALC will need to be signed before joining the course.

Included within the course fee is mentoring for a period of six months from the date of the final training session attended. This will be distance supported.
