Siyaphambili, ‘we are moving forward’, is a hub for post-compulsory education information and research. We aim to:
- Expand the base of empirical research on those who access post-schooling and those who do not
- Enhance an understanding of education-related inequalities
- Investigate how graduates from diverse backgrounds and with different qualifications navigate the labour market and other post-graduation trajectories
We currently work on projects in South Africa and Ghana, utilising a combination of longitudinal administrative data as well as household and panel survey data.
Principal investigators on the project, Nicola Branson and Vimal Ranchhod, are joined by post-doctoral fellow Emma Whitelaw, and affiliate Judy Favish. Siyaphambili is a sister project of the Siyaphumelela project, both of which were initiated via funding by the Kresge Foundation.
Browse a variety of the team’s journal articles, working papers, book chapters, briefs and other writings.
Projects we are involved in span five themes related to tracking and monitoring, labour markets and social outcomes, inequality, funding policy, and capacity building. View these themes below for more information about Siyaphambili’s research agenda.
