The Professional Clerking Programme

The Professional Clerking Programme is a new, nationally available development opportunity designed for those working in a clerking role. The whole programme is focused on the DfE Clerking Competency Framework, and so applicable for clerks in all educational settings. The two face-to-face workshops with an experienced facilitator and eight modules focus on the development of clerking competencies. 

It develops the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to provide professional clerking to the governing boards of maintained schools, academies and multi-academy trusts. Read the competency framework here.

We would love to run more clerking cohorts
We know that travelling to a training course isn’t always easy, so we can bring The Professional Clerking Programme to you!
The course needs a minimum of 10 people to run, so get in touch if you have 9+ colleagues in your local area who also would like to attend the training. Email us at for more details.
