CPD Unit Annual Review 2023

31 March 2024

We are pleased to present the CPD Unit's Annual Review of 2023, detailing the different aspects to our work and how we develop and nurture inter-disciplinary opportunities that support the University's strategic objectives.

At the heart of Cardiff University’s commitment to unlocking innovative solutions to complex problems is our dedication to equipping individuals and organisations with essential skills and knowledge to thrive. That’s where the CPD Unit comes in – we work across the University, bringing together academics and private, public and third sectors to develop training to tackle some of the grand challenges facing society.

Throughout our review of the year, you’ll gain insights into the diverse range of CPD activities offered by the University, methodologies we employ to ensure effectiveness, and strategies we implement to stay ahead in an ever-evolving educational landscape. Our work at the CPD Unit continually evolves to offer a service covering a vast breadth of activity; however, our objectives remain the same - supporting Academic Schools to create and promote opportunities and pathways for CPD learners, and engaging with businesses and organisations to develop professional development that supports their strategic objectives.

The sbarc|spark building, which sits at the centre of the University’s Innovation Campus, has been our home since March 2022. We have gained tremendously from being based in this community – which is all about forging new possibilities though connections, creativity and curiosity. Our place within sbarc|spark enables us to work alongside research units, deepen our relationships with colleagues and broaden our collaborations with business. One such area we are exploring is with the Net Zero Innovation Institute, identifying postgraduate modules that can be used to upskill industry workers in areas like planning, energy, architecture, and supply chains.

If you feel inspired after reading our review of the year, come and visit us for a chat at sbarc|spark. We’ll show you around, grab a cuppa at the café and enjoy Cardiff’s landmarks from the 6th floor balcony.
