PARI-PSETA Scholarship Programme

Type :
Location :
University of the Witwatersrand.
Deadline :
Friday, October 31, 2014

The Public Affairs Research Institute (PARI) invites applications for the PARI-PSETA Scholarship Programme available for Masters Study at the University of the Witwatersrand. The scholarships will support two talented postgraduate students in the fields of education, sociology, economics and relevant social science disciplines interested in critically exploring the nature, purpose or proposed models of skills development and capacity building in the public service in South Africa.

PARI and PSETA wish to support research which provides new insights into how to measure and develop capacity in the public sector and develop approaches to skills development and training.  Successful candidates do not have to take the meaning of the concepts ‘capacity building’ and ‘skills development’ as given and can interpret these concepts critically and in relation to a wide range of social science literature. Students may apply qualitative or quantitative approaches (such as conducting survey research).
