The Improvement and Development Board (IDB) has confirmed that the final date that submissions under the CiLCA 2013 criteria will be accepted is 30 June 2017.
This allows for all students completing the CiLCA 2013 qualification to submit a portfolio and to re-sit any failed sections. This is NOT an extension to your deadline. You should still ensure that you submit your completed portfolio by your original submission date. ALL re-sits will need to be finalised by the 30 June 2017.
Any student who has still not passed by this date will need to re-register under the new CiLCA 2015 criteria and will be required to pay the appropriate registration fee at the time of registration.

CiLCA - Certificate in Local Council Administration
The National Training Strategy has developed a customised qualification for the sector, the Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA). This core skills qualification is awarded to those who submit a portfolio of evidence, within 12 months of registering, demonstrating the skills they have in local council administration.
The 2013 CiLCA portfolio guide
The qualification was revised and re-launched in 2013 all those already registered in England will undertake the 2013 guide. If you have not yet registered, further information regarding CiLCA 2015 is available here.
Experienced clerks may feel able to prepare their portfolio of evidence without training, however County Training Partnerships have been established to provide a choice of training opportunities, designed to meet the needs of the Certificate in Local Council Administration.
Note also that clerks holding the Certificate of Higher Education in Local Policy (or the earlier CertHE in Local Council Administration) awarded before July 2004 by the University of Gloucestershire are exempt from the Certificate in Local Council Administration, as competence has already been demonstrated and assessed through this advanced training course. They will however need to undertake individual stand alone sections in order to exercise certain powers eg The General Power of Competence.
CiLCA Learning Outcome (LO) – The General Power of Competence
PLEASE NOTE - YOU WILL NOW NEED TO COMPLETE SECTION LO7 OF CILCA 2015
