African officials visit University
Three senior researchers from the South
African Human Sciences Research Council, Dr Andrew Patterson, Dr Azeem
Badroodien and Mr Jacques du Toit, visited the Centre for Labour Market
Studies for a week during March, 2003.
The researchers came to consult
with staff at CLMS on the conduct of the first comprehensive skills
survey to be undertaken in South Africa.
Whilst in Leicester, Dr Azeem Badroodien gave a seminar entitled The
State of Enterprise Training in South Africa.
CLMS staff were able to use their
experience of conducting similar surveys in the United Kingdom,
together with their knowledge of research in other countries, to
advise on the overall strategy of the research, the methodology, and
analysis of the data.
The survey will be used as one of
the main tools for evaluating the new national skills strategy in
