WEDC – Water, Engineering and Development Centre

Capacity development

WEDC has been providing training for professionals working in the WASH sector for over 40 years. This includes formal assessed courses leading to MScs, postgraduate diplomas and postgraduate certificates, as well as bespoke short courses for NGOs, National governments and private companies. These are often in conjunction with a local university, to build training capacity globally. Whilst the courses and training are the obvious output of this activity, these are underpinned by research into capacity building and training, to ensure that what we deliver is supported by good human resource development practice and proven pedagogical approaches. We have also undertaken a variety of innovative capacity development projects, examples of which are listed below.
