TRAINING FOR NEW CLERKS

As a new Clerk we recommend that you attend our 'Essential Four': our Induction course, Budgeting (held in Autumn), End of Year Finance (held in Spring) and Clerks' Networking events.  Then take a look at courses for Improving/Experienced Clerks to see what else is available to you as you settle into your role.
