Professional Training Team

Within the International Development Centre we have pioneered professional training in international development for nearly 50 years. We work with a range of clients including national and international development agencies, governments and non-governmental organisations.

The School of International Development faculty has a wide range of academic disciplines with an intensive engagement in development practice through academic funded research and consultancy in many development arenas and geographical regions. Our research-led short courses seek to educate, inform and promote discussion and networking between participants and our researchers. They provide cutting edge training on the most pertinent and relevant topics in international development. 

Our training courses take place on the University of East Anglia's distinctive and attractive campus just outside the historic city of Norwich.
