UNU-IAS will hold a final reporting workshop of the 2019 Global Leadership Training Programme in Africa (GLTP) where trainees from this programme will have an opportunity to discuss their research and findings.
GLTP, which has been implemented by UNU-IAS since 2013, is a training scheme sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan (MEXT). It is designed to provide Japanese postgraduate students with opportunities to conduct field research in Africa and work closely with supervisors in local universities, with the objective of developing global leaders for the future.
In 2019, nine Japanese postgraduate students were selected and conducted field research under the supervision of five host universities and institutes in five African countries (Kenya, Zambia, Uganda, South Africa, and Malawi) for two to six months. Their research themes are diverse including analysis on the relevance of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to labor market needs, the roles of School Management Committees and PTAs on the quality of primary education in Uganda, and the development of an underground mining Monitoring System using Wifi in South Africa.
In this reporting session, seven trainees will share their research outcomes and experiences with the public and the growing GLTP alumni network. There are two students who returned to Japan due to COVID-19 and are currently continuing their research remotely.
The event will be held in English only. No interpretation will be provided.
