The Learning and Development strand of the Capacity Building Fund seeks to provide opportunities for individuals to attend training sessions which are not a statutory requirement for their role but would enhance their ability to undertake their job effectively. This is often known as CPD (Continuing Professional Development). The Charity recognises these are often the ‘nice extras’ and whilst many organisations have a strong desire to offer such training opportunities to their staff, they do not have the budget to do so.
