JET Education Services

UNEVOC Centre (Uni/Research) since 2013

JET Education Services (JET) is an independent non-governmental organisation founded in 1992 which works with government and public sector institutions, the private sector, civil society organisations, local and international development agencies and education institutions to improve the quality of education and the relationship between education, skills development and the world of work.


To impact education policy and implementation in South Africa and Africa through rethinking current education systems and engaging in evidence-based research.


Through evidence-based knowledge interventions, collaboration with the public and private sectors, and the use of technological infrastructure, JET endeavours to turn challenges into solutions, resulting in improved education quality, particularly for disadvantaged communities.

Regular tasks

Our work is based on a value chain of three interrelated components: research, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation.

Key work areas:

Mapping study that will form the basis of an African Continental Qualifications Framework.

Tracer studies focusing on youth employability, including in agricultural TVET.

Production of new thought pieces, e.g. brief on the impact of COVID-19 on education more broadly.

Research on uses of AI in higher education and TVET specifically.

JET has contributed to the UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme over many years

Compilation of the MLW2020 Compendium, following the publication of the 2019 Compendium authored by JET.
