International Peace and Development Training Centre (IPDTC) programs have been run all over the world for the last 20 years – for practitioners on the ground, staff of UN missions and agencies, governments and senior conflict and political leadership. Our programmes are designed to be skills and knowledge intensive, highly practical, and drawing from on-the-ground experience in peacebuilding and addressing conflicts from around the world.
IPDTC has been evaluated by many partners, practitioners and past participants – we have more than 4000 alumni world-wide – as one of the leading centres of excellence in training for peacebuilding, prevention and post-war recovery and peace consolidation. Our portfolio of programmes includes both our Advanced Certificate Programmes offered at the Global Academy in Cluj-Napoca, Romania; Executive Leadership Programmes and Intensive Core Skills Trainings in London; and programmes which are provided upon request and customised for partners, missions and agencies around the world. With a roster of some of the world’s leading trainers and practitioners, IPDTC hosts annually up to 15 training programmes at its Global Centre and in London, and another 20 – 30 provided on-request with organisations, agencies and governments
At IPDTC we make a commitment to participants and those commissioning trainings that every programme will be highly practical, customised to your needs, and assisting you in developing the critical skills, knowledge and understanding, and capabilities to best support your work. Our goal is to have impact. To help those working in the field – from policy makers to conflict parties and practitioners on the ground – have the support they need to best achieve real, actual and meaningful change to support peacebuilding, violence prevention and post-war recovery.
