PGD in Education Policy & Analysis

Education Policy Analysis

This course equips innovative and passionate professionals with both the requisite theoretical understanding and practical experience to address vexed education policy and analysis issues in their local, national, regional and international dimensions. It also provides more general analytical and conceptual skills of the cross-cutting dimensions of equity and rights, such as gender sensitivity, subalternity, diversity and pluralism, which will add significant value in multi-disciplinary engagement in broader planning and analysis arenas. A capstone project undertaken by students provides them with the crucial opportunity for hands-on engagement to test their learning and solve problems on the ground in replicable and theoretically valid ways.

Key Take-aways & Expected outcomes from the Course

In addition to providing successful participants with a prestigious qualification that will enhance their ability to access a range of career pathways in the policy, analysis and research sectors, the programme will prepare them to play lead roles in much-needed education reform design, implementation and assessment, as well as to leverage their expertise to advocate for equity and redress on behalf of educationally marginalized and discriminated groups, through the carefully blended integration of knowledge, research and practice. An added strength in this programme is that it permits students to follow their own interests within the broad space of education policy, both through selecting optional courses and by designing an appropriate capstone research/field project, the publication of which will prove invaluable in their career development. The course will be delivered through a student-centered participatory methodology that includes confidence-building exposure to eminent international experts in the field.

This course is unique because it combines the best pedagogical and conceptual insights benchmarked with globally outstanding and prestigious programs focused on education policy and analysis, with a firmly rooted regionally pragmatic focus that engages with key issues in order to produce tangible outcomes through the capstone project. Hence, successful students will obtain both cutting edge knowledge and skills, as well as the confidence that comes of producing effective and innovative solutions to real-world problems on the ground. It also addresses cross-cutting dimensions, which will prove invaluable in other areas of leadership, policy and analysis. 

Who will benefit from this course?

The DEPAT is of highest value to professionals and practitioners working in the field of education, young academics within the spectrum of related disciplines, civil society representatives invested in sustainable social transformation, and those who have future plans to engage in the multi-disciplinary arena of education and empowerment. The capstone project and cross-cutting modules will enhance the career path of an even wider group, as these components have near-universal value for the spectrum of professionals aspiring to leadership positions.
