  • Members can use the designated ‘Principal member’ logo on their CV and job applications.
  • Members will receive a ‘Principal member’ pin badge to wear at events and training.
  • Members will receive three Professional Development, news bulletins offering the latest training news, advice on gaining CPD points and support with professional development.


‘I would definitely recommend the Professional Development Scheme to others.  The Clerk’s role can be quite lonely but knowing you are part of a bigger picture helps you and motivates you in your role.  I am lucky in that I am a large council with an office and colleagues, however some clerks don’t have that.  By developing further and attending training I feel like I’m part of a family and it inspires me within my role and takes away that isolation.’ Jacqueline Webster PSLCC, Quedgeley Town Council


What are the benefits of becoming a Fellow member?

  • Members can use the designated ‘Fellow member’ logo on their CV and job applications.
  • Members will receive a ‘Fellow member’ pin badge to wear at events and training.
  • Members will receive three, Professional Development news bulletins offering the latest training news, advice on gaining CPD points and support with professional development.

‘I became a Fellow in order that my experience and contribution to the sector could be recognised and that my Council appreciate the extent of my professional development.

Gaining CPD points has, through the training I’ve undertaken, allowed me to speak with confidence on Local Government law, new and emerging legislation and to bring the Council up to a Quality Award level.
I would definitely recommend the Professional Development Scheme to other clerks – I have seen unqualified clerks who struggle with changes to legislation, aren’t proficient in the law and their role and, therefore, struggle to administer their Council effectively.’ Vanessa Ricketts FSLCC, Ferndown Town Council

 

*This will only be available to members who renew for a full year, if a member upgrades to Principal or Fellow level after their renewal date they will not receive the training voucher. The voucher will be valid for SLCC CPD courses, Regional Training Seminars and Conferences which take place during the membership start and end date.
