The Vocational Studies arm of the
IPSS is founded on the work of the Further Education and Training Institute
(FETI), which joined the Education Faculty as an Institute in 2005, and is now
part of the IPSS.
FETI has engaged in
the TVET sector since 1997, conducting training for college lecturers
undertaking policy analysis, conducting funded research and development
projects. As a part of the IPSS, Vocational Education Studies will continue to
concern itself with capacity building of vocational educators and support to
the TVET sector through relevant qualifications, policy analysis, research and
development and related advocacy.
