Teaching & Training
CIDT has a long history of offering training and courses for capacity strengthening to a range of international development sectors and specialisms.
Our training approach
CIDT favours an experiential approach to training which is consistent with best practice for adult learning. Typically participants:
- are facilitated through a process of experience, reflection, conceptualisation and planning.
- are able to use their own experience as a basis for learning.
- construct their own knowledge and meaning from experience.
- view content through the lens of their existing roles, responsibilities and challenges.
- can immediately begin to put into practice what they have learned.
- take responsibility for their own learning.
How can we help you?
- Conducting training needs assessment (TNA) and analysis.
- Designing tailor-made professional development courses and delivering short face-to-face training courses and workshops.
- Developing and hosting online training programmes.
- Organising and facilitating working sessions, high-level meetings and other participatory analysis or planning processes.
- Hosting study visits, technical placements/secondments, on-the-job training, and tailored professional development programmes for clients at our UK Campus.
