During November the Bradford Centre for International Development is hosting 28 senior officials from the China Development Bank (CBD), who have arrived in Bradford to attend a 2 week tailored made short course titled ‘Project Appraisal for Decision Making’, which will also involve visits to London and Cambridge. This is our 9th Programme with the Bank and it is part of an on-going partnership which continues to grow thanks to a strong history of successful capacity building programmes for CBD staff. The China Development Bank is one of the largest banks funding infrastructure and development projects both in China and worldwide. Its portfolio includes projects in the transport, energy, water and urban development industries, and more recently social projects including student loans and micro-lending for small and medium enterprises
Alongside the CBD officials, we are also hosting 21 Registrars from some of the most distinguished Higher Education Institutions in Pakistan. The Registrars are visiting as part of a Leadership Programme (running from the 10th till the 18th November) also organised by the Bradford Centre for International Development. The programme offers a series of workshops around leadership and management delivered by renowned experts in the field. It also includes visits to Wales, Scotland and London to provide opportunities for networking and sharing best practices in the field of Leadership and Management within the education sector. The programme is funded by the British Council and the Higher Education Commission in Pakistan.
