What do you mean by courses organised within the framework of continuing professional development?
Continuing professional development (CPD) is defined as job-related continuing education and training in which people obtain knowledge and/or learn new skills for a current or a future job or to improve their opportunities for advancement and promotion. CPD activity is not part of the regular teaching activities supported through the institution’s general grants and tuition fees paid by students enrolled in degree programs. So it is mostly short fee-based training programmes of a vocational character and excludes the training of degree-seeking students in the institution's BA, MA courses.

We are interested in income from regional, national and international sources of all faculties (departments) combined.
