College Development Network (CDN) is a key college sector agency, we provide professional learning and development for college staff across Scotland. We have huge reach into the college sector and last year over 5,500 delegates attended CDN events.
Our services are shaped by the needs of the sector and Scottish Government’s strategic priorities. Working with partners, CDN has a key remit to turn policy into effective practice.
Our new strategic framework is clustered around three aims:
• We work to improve the quality of teaching and support for learners by developing the skills and expertise of our lecturers and support staff.
• We invest in the strategic vision and performance of college education, by developing great emerging leaders and excellent governance structures in colleges and beyond.
• We are a catalyst for sector innovation, by networking colleges and showcasing their expertise, connecting industry and education to boost economic growth, and empowering partnerships that join up the learner journey.
