awards banner

The UK Career Development Awards are a high point in the CDI event calendar, when we recognise and celebrate excellence across the career development sector, in the UK and internationally.

Thank you to everyone who entered the UK Career Development Awards 2022. We had a fantastic range of nominations and the CDI Board have now completed their shortlisting. We are delighted to announce the shortlisted entries for each award as per below.

Congratulations to everyone who has been shortlisted. With so many great entries, just being nominated is great recognition in itself. Commiserations to all those who didn’t make the shortlist – we hope you continue to build on your excellent work this year and hope to see your future nominations.

The shortlisted entries have been reviewed by the final judging panels and the winner for each award will be announced at the UK Career Development Awards ceremonies, along with the announcement of this year’s CDI Fellows.

We are just finalising the ceremonies which will be held online in June and will be free to attend. We will post all the details here as soon as they are confirmed.
