Centre for Professional and Executive Development (CfPED)
Buckingham can offer a range of professional development qualifications and short courses to organisations and individuals. All options are supported by specialist academics and experienced practitioners.
Many of our qualifications are accredited by professional institutes such as the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Chartered Management Institute. Our Certificate and Diploma programmes are accredited by the University of Buckingham and offer the opportunity to carry Higher Education Framework credits to undergraduate and postgraduate courses at Buckingham and elsewhere.
We can offer flexible delivery for corporate customers and our major programmes can be delivered at Buckingham, on your site, or elsewhere, such as specialist training venues or hotels.
The rest of our courses are delivered at the University in Buckingham. Everyone who joins one of our programmes can have access to library facilities, either in our main libraries in Buckingham or online, to support their studies.
