Helping people find their own path to development

The Centre for International Development and Training (CIDT) is a centre within the University of Wolverhampton. CIDT 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.

Capacity strengthening for inclusive and sustainable development

Capacity strengthening is at the heart of our work at CIDT. For more than four decades, we have worked in over 140 countries worldwide to deliver programs, projects and consultancies aimed at enhancing capacity across a range of sectors. Our services are relevant to the needs of stakeholders in developing countries and professionals working in international development.

Our work is demand-driven, 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.
