Hampshire ALC CiLCA Training and Mentoring Programme

The Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA) qualification is a Level 3 foundation qualification that provides local council staff, such as clerks, with a broad knowledge of all the aspects of their work including roles and responsibilities, the law, procedures, finance planning and community involvement. This qualification will take approximately 12 months to complete and is administered by the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC) as part of the sector framework of qualifications.

The Hampshire ALC CiLCA Training and Mentoring Programme has four sessions, each lasting 3.5 hours. The sessions are held throughout the 12 months that you are registered to take the CiLCA.

Suitable Audience

This course is for anyone who wants to be supported whilst completing the CiLCA qualification.

If you would like to enrol on to this course, you must have attended the Hampshire ALC Introduction to the CiLCA Qualification session first.

Hampshire ALC recommends that you do not register, including payment of the £450 registration fee, with the SLCC to take the qualification until you have attended the Hampshire ALC Introduction to the CiLCA Qualification session and have all that you need to make an informed decision.

This training may be held face to face or online. If online, you will need a device with a reasonable screen size such as a PC, laptop or tablet to be able to participate fully.


During the 12 months you are registered to take the CiLCA, your mentor will support you with the completion of your portfolio and the requirement to upload evidence and work to an online portfolio system.
