Whether you are a university, a business or another type of organisation, our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Unit provides a dedicated service to help you access the right professional training for your staff.

We will listen and work in partnership with you, from identification of your training requirement, through to course design, delivery and beyond. Working in partnership with us ensures you have the best opportunity to engage with the University in all that it offers.

Our team of experts at the CPD Unit are here to provide you with a gateway to access the huge range of expertise available across the University. We will guide you through the process, facilitating the translation of research and knowledge into practical, impactful training activities.

Our service spans the full range of requirements from initial proposal discussions through to meticulous planning of the delivery of your training. This includes offering advice and services relating to accommodation – private residences or University residences, transportation from airport, visits to businesses/ organisations to enhance the learning experience, cultural activities and student support.

Customer service excellence

We're proud to hold the prestigious Customer Service Excellence standard®, which means you can be sure that your experience with us will be positive and friendly.

I will show our college management what I have learnt and seen at Cardiff University, such as the professionalism of the professional service staff and organisational structure, which are all inspirational to how we can improve our service quality and team structures.

CSC delegate, 2018 programme

As a truly international university, we understand the challenges and opportunities that globalisation brings, and we know that working collaboratively to share knowledge is the key to success and sustainability.

We have developed many partnerships and strategic relationships around the world, and we have a thriving international community, with over 7,900 students and 25% of our academic staff choosing Cardiff for study, research or work.

As globalisation increases, training and re-training staff is likely to become even more vital; we are experienced in supporting organisations to develop and deliver courses for global challenges – the opportunities of AI and big data, how to develop the next generation of teachers and technology leaders, the future of our cities or tackling the health inequalities and identifying the causes of disease.

The University offers programmes in a wide variety of subjects. These are some of the subjects that can be developed into bespoke training programmes.

If you would like to discuss how working with us can benefit your business, please call or email us for an initial informal chat or complete our bespoke requirements form.
