Every candidate registering for CiLCA will submit their portfolio using EMMA.
This is our online e-portfolio tool which allows you to create and submit your portfolio of evidence for the qualification online, providing the following benefits:
• Save time and reduce the cost associated with producing a paper portfolio.
• Access and work on the portfolio at any time from any device.
• Submit units individually and receive feedback directly from the assessors.
• Connect to your assessor, streamlining the process of qualifications.
You will receive a login to EMMA within four weeks of registration.
If you have a disability or technical disadvantage that makes it impossible to use EMMA, you should apply to the CiLCA Administrator for a dispensation providing evidence of your circumstances.

"I have to say that I have found the process completely different from what I expected. Submitting via EMMA was very straightforward and feedback came back far quicker than expected. The feedback has been nothing but constructive and supportive and I found the process to be very affirming, in what is often such an isolated job." Gill Merry, Aston Clinton Parish Council
“At first I was apprehensive about using EMMA to submit my portfolio having only known people submitting theirs in the paper format but I found the system very user friendly. I also thought the way that you could submit a unit at a time was really beneficial especially initially, when you may not be overly confident.
The feedback from the assessor was invaluable and they NEVER criticised – only offered assistance and guidance where and when needed. I will certainly recommend anyone to use EMMA for their CILCA portfolio.” Jane Tyrrell, Hartley Parish Council
