The CEPD provides the following services in the areas of education and training, with a particular emphasis on systemic issues related to schooling, further education and training, and higher education:
Evaluation and Monitoring
Conducting evaluation and monitoring of education and training programmes and institutions.
Research projects are both self-initiated (with funding sought from donors) and conducted on behalf of clients. In particular, the CEPD specialises in research which has policy implications or is aimed at systems development.
Policy Development and Policy Analysis
Activities aimed at developing and analysing policy are undertaken for national and provincial governments as well as organisations of civil society.
Management of research, monitoring and evaluation projects involving a number of different service providers. Projects are managed on behalf of government, other agencies or consortia of service providers.
Training programmes and other development and support activities are organised for managers at various levels of the education system as well as for those individuals and organisations who are engaged in the in-service training of teachers.
Financial management of project funds on behalf of government, donor agencies and organisations of civil society. This often involves additional activities, including evaluations, preparation of programme reports and the organisation of meetings.
Conferences, workshops and seminars are organised on request from clients or initiated by the CEPD around important issues in education and training. Such organisation can include assistance with the conceptualisation of conferences, developing an agenda, logistical activities (booking venues, flight arrangements, invitations, registration etc.), facilitation and development of reports and proceedings.
