Ruth is CiLCA qualified and has just been awarded a First Class Level 6 BA Hons Degree in Community Governance in partnership with the SLCC and De Montfort University.
Well done Ruth!
Ruth has been studying for 6 years, commencing with a Certificate of Higher Education, Foundation Degree and then onto a BA Hons degree. Ruth would like to get more Worcestershire Clerks enrolled on the course. When Ruth was asked about the course she replied, “If you think Level 4 will be too academic and not for you, think again. I had only previously taken GCSE’s so had never studied higher education. Level 4 is a more in-depth continuation of CiLCA, everything this level covers relates to actual issues you will encounter in your role as Clerk even if, like myself, your councils are not too large. At times study can feel a little daunting but the assignments are carefully structured and you have complete support throughout in the form of a personal tutor. I have completed, loved, and thrived on the whole experience and has given me so many opportunities within our wonderful sector. “
Please do not hesitate to get in contact with Ruth if you would like to know more about Community Governance.
