What is CiLCA?
CiLCA is a foundation qualification for local council officers and others working with local councils.
It’s 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 councils in England. Local councils in this instance are parish, town, community and neighbourhood councils.
CiLCA is administered by the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC).
