Short courses for professional development


Professional development options may be the most suitable route of study for you if you are an experienced professional without a higher qualification seeking to enhance your career prospects. 

Many of our 15-credit postgraduate modules from the Water Management for Development (at WEDC) programme at WEDC or by distance learning can count towards future study towards a Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma or MSc.


Tailor-made courses for groups

Improving the coverage and sustainability of water supply and sanitation services requires high calibre technical and professional people. Improving the knowledge and skills of existing staff increases the capacity of the whole organisation to deliver corporate goals more effectively and efficiently.

Improving the skills of individuals also increases self-motivation and opens career pathways. Organisations that invest in the development of their human resources attract and retain better people, reducing administration and recurrent recruitment costs.

For these reasons, we have always adopted a flexible approach to the design of our short courses and see their design as a collaborative process. With you, we focus on solutions for your staff, helping to provide evidence-based answers to the problems you face.
