for inclusive and sustainable development

University of Wolverhampton

For more than four decades we have delivered capacity strengthening in over 140 countries worldwide, through programmes, projects and consultancies aimed at enhancing capacity across a range of sectors.

Our teaching, technical assistance and project management services meet the needs of stakeholders in developing countries and professionals working in international development. Our work is highly participatory and tailored to meet specific client-determined needs. Developing knowledge, facilitating learning and collaboration, and promoting best practices are key to our approach to promoting sustainable development.

A University-based social enterprise

The Centre for International Development and Training (CIDT) is based within the University of Wolverhampton. It is unique in having the corporate backing and research support of an institution of higher learning, while functioning as a social enterprise deeply involved in the practice of international development. We have successfully adapted the traditional model of the University to meet the technical and institutional needs of developing countries.
