The Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA) has become the professional standard in the local council sector.
Who can take CiLCA?
Clerks, Assistant Clerks and officers working with local councils. When a council’s chief officer attains CiLCA, the council may be eligible to apply for the Local Council Award Scheme (Quality and Quality Gold) and also able to use the General Power of Competence (GPC).
You will need a good working knowledge and understanding of the clerk’s role and work involved. We recommend that you are in post for a minimum of 12 months before applying for the CiLCA qualification.
If you feel you have good reason to train for CiLCA before being in post for 1 year please contact us in advance to discuss this matter.
