Continuing Professional Development

Sharing your knowledge

CPD is an important part of the University’s knowledge exchange activity, offering a valuable opportunity to pass on the knowledge and expertise gained from our research.

The Research Funding & Development Team should be your first port of call for costing and pricing your non-accredited CPD courses and guiding you through the preparation process.  Accredited courses are supported by the Finance Office.

What can we do for you?

The Research and Enterprise Office will assist you with identifying and exploiting opportunities to provide non-accredited CPD by helping you to:

  • Maximise your income (using cost and market analysis and working within the University’s knowledge exchange policies)
  • Diverse strategies to best respond to the needs of potential customer groups
  • Market planned courses and your ability to deliver bespoke courses
  • Establish and manage relationships with potential and current CPD customer organisations.

Further detail is available for staff in the University’s CPD Policy.

The Research Funding & Development Team will help with contract negotiations and authorisation from the university for official acceptance of contracts and, once your consultancy project has started, brief colleagues in the Finance Office to facilitate project set-up.
