JETStreaming takes its inspiration from both the virtual world and the real world. Jet streams in the atmosphere have the power to influence entire weather patterns, and streaming in the digital space can be said to do the same through social media thus influencing decision making processes around the world.

JET will focus on developing capacity in the core elements of education research, development of models and their application, monitoring and evaluation of projects and the honing of project management skills ensuring that young South Africans are able to come up with their own unique solutions to the inequalities that plague us in education.

In a nutshell JETStreaming is a capacity building programme in education research involving:

  • a combination of experiential workplace immersion, and
  • formal/collaborative training processes,

that seeks to build self-driven, continually learning, social justice change agents in education research in South Africa.
