Training & Conferences

ERNLLCA operates a substantial and accredited annual training programme which is held in high regard and is delivered by qualified instructors. The real test of ERNLLCA’s training programme is the value attendees place on it. During the last year, councillors’ comments have included “very productive”, “well presented”, “easy to follow”, “professional and informative” and “excellent”. ERNLLCA does have to levy a charge for training but offers a reduced rate for small councils. Membership fees do not include the cost of delivering training. 

We are also a leading partner in the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Training Partnership which co-ordinates and delivers professional development opportunities for Clerks. The current portfolio guide for the Certificate in Local Council Administration can be accessed below.

In addition to our ongoing training programme ERNLLCA also provides an annual conference and details of which will be published shortly.
