Training for Experienced Clerks – (Limited places)

Thu, 03 Nov 2022 09:30

Time: 9.30am to 12.30pm

Cost: £50.00 or £25.00 with small council bursary

We are always keen to advocate that even though someone may have done a job for quite some time, there is always something to learn. Through the casework enquiries that we receive it is clear that even an experienced clerk can't know everything, we have therefore arranged a training session to help expand the knowledge of those who have been in office for a while. This session will be useful to clerks who have achieved the Certificate in Local Council Administration (CiLCA) and those who have not.

To register and book a place for this session, please email admin@yorkshirelca.gov.uk.
