CiLCA 2018 Learning Agreement

This is the Learning Agreement which needs to be completed for the next round of CiLCA training and mentoring which starts in March 2018.

(See training section on website for details and booking form)

CiLCA – The Qualification for you

The Certificate in Local Council Administration is a distance learning course verified by the Monitoring and Verification Board which is directly applicable to "the day job".

On registering for CiLCA, the candidate has one year to complete the portfolio of evidence for submission.


We feel that the time and commitment you put into offering support and help to your council needs to be recognised and the CiLCA qualification does just this! Expect to put in on average about 50 hours of work and one of the rewards is another notch on the salary scale, providing your council has signed up to the National Agreement. CiLCA also offers an opportunity to ensure you have the basic knowledge to carry out a professional job. CiLCA is the recognised qualification in our sector as a sign of achievement and is required in most job applications. Consider your future aspirations.


So think about your future, think about your current knowledge, think about your council. This is your next step to professionalism. CiLCA is also a requirement of your council to have a qualified Clerk in adopting the General Power of Competence and obtaining the Local Council Award Scheme. Ask Alison for more details.

Now is the time to explore this.
