CiLCA Qualification – An Introduction Suitable Audience Officers considering taking the Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA) qualification, who have not completed the Introduction to Local Council Administration (ILCA) qualification. If you would like to enrol on the Hampshire ALC Training & Mentoring Programme to support you in completing your CiLCA Portfolio, you must attend this session first, unless you have completed the ILCA. The CiLCA qualification is administered by the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC) as part of the framework of qualifications it offers for local council officers. SLCC recommends that officers have gained some experience of working in the sector, for example 6 months prior to registering to complete this qualification. However, we welcome officers to this introductory session who have been in post less than this but think that they may have previous relevant experience. Please let us know this at the time of booking and we will discuss further with you during the session to help you decide if the CiLCA is right for you at this time. Hampshire ALC recommends that you do not register, including payment of the £410 (non- vatable) registration fee, with the SLCC to take the qualification until you have attended this session and have all that you need to make an informed decision. This training may be held face to face or online. If online, attendees will need a device with a reasonable screen size such as a PC, laptop, or tablet to be able to participate fully.
