This is the essential qualification for Clerks and bookings. Currently delivered via Zoom for our ongoing March course and students are loving it! So our September course will be via Zoom too. This also allows us to continue to keep the cost affordable. The six sessions make up the full training course and are designed to support your portfolio submission by instalment or at the end of the course. This training course will take you through each of the 30 learning outcomes. It will also explain how to compile your portfolio, involve your Council, and strengthen your knowledge as a practitioner. Feedback from a Clerk on our Autumn 2019 course: “I really have enjoyed the course – a great mix of seminar and teaching – would thoroughly recommend it to anyone considering it.”
