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.
