Administrative Jobs in South Africa

The Inclusive Economic Development (IED) division undertakes research that aims to transform educational outcomes and increase economic participation. It recognises that education and the economy have long been linked, and thus conducts research in both areas, sometimes discretely, often overlapping, and through a multidisciplinary lens. We research ways to improve the context of learning for those who have had unequal starting points as well the social, spatial and structural obstacles to economic participation to bring about the gains and growth South Africa needs.
