Member’s profile: Nicola Pearce
At the University of Aberdeen I manage the CPD Services Unit which provides event management and other support in delivering professional development and other commercial activities from across the University’s 12 Schools, and the many and varied multidisciplinary research centres and institutes.
As well as policy development, key roles include conference and event management, budget setting and control, marketing, quality assurance and providing advice on all aspects of CPD development throughout the University. Projects can range from short courses, conferences and e-learning to Postgraduate qualifications.
The unit comprises 7 staff – and we deliver between 20 – 40 events annually depending on size and scale. We also act as PCO for external organisations such as other Universities, Associations and Companies.
Previously I worked at RGU managing an open learning degree programme and have qualifications in online learning and management.
