Society of Local Council Clerks

Society of Local Clerks (SLCC) is the professional body for local council clerks and senior council employees. SLCC provides training, guidance, advice and support to members so that they can develop the professional skills, knowledge and experience necessary for them to best serve their councils and communities across England and Wales. 

SLCC runs conferences, training events, an advice service and most importantly, a qualifications framework helping to ensure that councils are served by officers who are highly competent, up-to-date and well-informed.   

SLCC is delighted to be running its Community Governance programme at Levels 4, 5 and 6 in partnership with De Montfort University.  The programme was first developed in 1987 and is unique in its specific relevance to the profession of local council clerk.  It provides an advanced qualification building on Levels 2 and 3 and, most unusually, it is mentioned in Government legislation giving councils with qualified clerks the General Power of Competence (GPC).

Our academic year runs from February 1st. Applications are accepted until mid-December.
