Centre for International Education (CIE)

Education and development in the Global South and the diaspora is the main focus of CIE. Our aim is to undertake research and provide a knowledge hub, insights and findings related to the concerns of lower income countries in different parts of the world seeking to enhance their development. Over the last 20 years, CIE has grown to become one of the largest and most highly rated academic groups of its kind in the UK, with a reputation as a leader in its fields of study and as a centre of excellence.

CIE offers a friendly, supportive and challenging environment in which to debate development issues, theoretical perspectives and methodological positions related to education and development. Its staff support the International Education and Development MA and approximately 30 doctoral candidates on the Education PhD course.

Undergraduates may want to consider complementing their studies with additional 'elective' modules (15 credits each) or 'pathways' (60 credits) in International Education and Development. Details can be found under Customise your course.

Continuing Professional Teacher Development in Sub-Saharan Africa: Improving Teaching and Learning

Edited by Yusuf Sayed

These reflections about CPD in Ghana, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe are windows into the world of education in the sub-Saharan context, generating policy and future research questions for context beyond their worlds of time and space and allowing a deeper insight into how the same words take on different meanings in different contexts. CPD offers more discomforting questions than certainties because its agenda is incomplete. Be uncomfortable as you tread these insightful territories.

Learning to Teach in Post-Apartheid South Africa: Student Teachers' Encounters with Initial Teacher Education

Five Editors, including Yusuf Sayed

This book extends the interest to provide empirically-led evidence from field work around teacher education in the South African context. Listening to reflections of student teachers of the lived experiences of the quality of thier initial teacher education programme, it provides insights into whether post-apartheid teacher education has impacted the trajectory of new directions.
