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.
