Centre for Professional Learning
The Centre for Professional Learning (CPL) offers a wide range of continuing education courses. These courses are specifically meant for professionals with an academic background who aim to deepen their knowledge and skills and broaden their perspective and networks in a public sector related field.
The courses focus on: Politics, Public Administration, Political Sensitivity, Public Affairs, Governance & Media, International Relations, International Law and European Cooperation. Masterclasses ‘Leadership in Complex Contexts’ are offered as a cross cutting theme, related to national, European and global contextual challenges.
All courses are developed by the programme managers at the Centre for Professional Learning of Leiden University - Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs, often in partnership with government and public sector organisations. Our course programmes combine academic excellence of Leiden University based scholars with the rich experience of senior practitioners such as politicians, journalists, and managers working in the public and semi-public sector.
