CiLCA is a foundation qualification for local council clerks and others working with local councils.

It is a Certificate in Local Council Administration awarded at Level 3 of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) where it is worth 20 credits. The qualification is owned and managed by the Improvement and Development Board (IDB) working on behalf of local (parish and town) councils in England and the National Training Advisory Group (NTAG) representing local councils in Wales. Local councils in this instance are parish, town, community and neighbourhood councils. CiLCA is administered by the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC).

Officers new to the sector are advised to take CiLCA after their first year in post. Learners must join an introductory session with a training needs assessment which helps you and your trainer decide if you are ready to take CiLCA, and you should not apply until you have completed your introductory session. You have one year to submit your portfolio from the date of submission.

For more information about CiLCA or to register either contact ChALC or visit SLCC.
