Wandsworth Professional Development Centre (WPDC)

Built in 2012, WPDC is a fresh, smart environment for professional learning in Wandsworth. The purpose-built centre on the top floor of Burntwood School combines contemporary architecture with flexible room spaces, making it the smart choice for professional development events and meetings.

Industry-leading facilities

Whatever your event, whether a conference, meeting, training session or something completely out of the ordinary, WPDC has a range of rooms to meet your needs. We can work with you to fully utilise the spaces available, perhaps by opening up adjoining rooms via our folding doors, or creating bespoke break out areas.

Our bright and modern venue has everything you need to deliver a professional and impressive event:

  • A dedicated, friendly team
  • Full on-site catering facilities offering a range of options including sandwiches, canapes and buffet style menus
  • Presentations pre-loaded, if required
  • AV and IT facilities
  • Facilities fully accessible to wheelchair users
  • Cost-effective pricing structures

The centre has excellent transport links and is just a short stroll from Earlsfield Station and local bus routes. There is a small on-site car park and cycle rack for visitors.
