The Society of Local Council Clerks is the professional body for clerks in town, parish and community councils in England and Wales. One of the services provided by the Society is a range of low cost training courses.
We offer the SLCC's essential course for all clerks: Introduction to Local Council Administration (ILCA). This new online sector specific learning tool will support all new council clerks in their roles in the first few months of employment, as well as those hoping to go on and complete their CiLCA qualification. The aim of the course is to provide an introduction to the work of a local council, the clerk and its councillors.
We support the clerk in achieving and maintaining the qualification Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA), enabling your council to apply for Quality Council Status.
Throughout the year we offer 11 Regional Training Seminars, this is one of the best ways to keep up to date technically with a mix of experienced contributors, both within the Society and externally, plus a number of exhibitors to consult. The Regional Training Seminars are open to both clerks and councilors.
Our Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Course Programme offers a wide range of topics of interest to clerks, their deputies and councillors. We have introduced some new topics for 2017 from feedback received from our members.
Don't forget, there is also a bursary scheme in Wales that could cover 50% of the training cost of up to £100. Click here to see the bursary pages for more information.
