West Midlands CMD is a collaborative approach to clergy development by the six dioceses of the West Midlands Training Partnership. Each diocese has a CMD officer who is licensed by the bishop to support clergy learning and development. In addition to this local provision, the six dioceses of the West Midlands Training Partnership are committed to working together to offer high quality training and development opportunities. We recognise the broad spectrum of challenges and opportunities facing clergy today, and have a shared vision for enriching and supporting deacons and priests through the whole of their ministry. Each CMD officer takes the lead in a different part of the programme, which together enables us to offer bespoke training in every phase of ministry.
