About UCU’s CPD programme

As an education union UCU is passionate about learning and personal development as well as providing our members with career support and opportunities to network with other staff.

Our CPD programme has been aligned with the professional frameworks that govern the sector to ensure that UCU membership contributes to increasing the professionalism and effectiveness of teaching and learning.

For many years UCU has run a comprehensive range of CPD courses aimed at addressing members’ learning needs wherever you work in post-school education. In 2019 we will be expanding our course offer and looking at innovative ways of reaching many more members than has been previously possible.

All of our courses are free of charge to UCU members. Unless otherwise stated, any member is entitled to attend any course advertised on this website, but please note UCU is unable to pay members’ travel and accommodation expenses to attend CPD events. We aim to make our courses as accessible to members as possible with events running in a wide range of locations.
