CiLCA Refresher Day 

CiLCA Training Autumn 2018

CiLCA is a foundation qualification for local council officers and others working with local councils, awarded at Level 3 of the National Qualifications framework (NFQ).

The Certificate in Local Council Administration will help you to become more aware of the law and procedures for local councils and helps you work with the planning system. It checks that you can manage the council's activities, its finances and community engagement.

In England, A CiLCA-qualified clerk helps the council gain the general power of competence and a Quality or Quality Gold Award. 

CiLCA helps your council achieve standards of good practice and builds the reputation of local councils in a fast changing world. 


'Clerks should be in post for at least 1 year before undertaking CiLCA training. Prior to that CAPALC offer 'Clerks: The Knowledge' which provides solid background training for new clerks whilst they gain experience in the work place. If you feel you have good reason to train for CiLCA before being in post for 1 year please speak to the CEO who can advise'.
