CiLCA Mentoring

CiLCA Mentoring 2024-25

4 sessions will be held as a mixture of in-person and online, depending on the preferences of the students. The first session will be held in-person in Freeland.

The mentoring is done by Lucy Dalby, experienced Clerk and County Officer, and Rachel Brown, experienced Clerk, Councillor and Assistant County Officer, who are both trained CiLCA Trainers.

Each session will run from 9.30am -1.30pm.

The training assists and supports your own learning, giving direction on what  the modules are looking for and how to approach answering them (but it doesn't give you the answers!)

We ask new students to complete a training needs assessment before starting, and we advise you not to register with SLCC until Session 1 has been completed with OALC. Registering with SLCC starts the clock ticking on the year you have in which to complete your work.

Prior to each session, each student registered with OALC will receive a work sheet detailing any preparation and documents needed in the mentoring session. Please ensure you have printed a copy of the recent Portfolio Guide July 2022. It’s a good idea to have a skim through prior to each session to gain an overview of the course.

Each mentoring session will commence with a review of previous sessions and any issues arising, followed by exploration and discussion on a specified unit from the Portfolio Guide. This will enable students to complete the Learning Outcomes before the next tutorial.

Dates are:

17th September 2024

19th November 2024
