The Research Bulletin on Post-School Education and Training (PSET) is published every year by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) as a resource for the research community, stakeholders, and participants in lifelong learning. It is a browser-based application, comprising abstracts, summaries, and excerpts of completed, current and planned research and evaluations; book reviews; summaries of event proceedings; reflections on research practice; and statistics on post-school education and training, most of which have web links to full research articles and reports.

The Research Bulletin promotes good quality research. It is not primarily a journal of opinion but is open to all well-argued and substantiated views, for which the authors are responsible for.

Contributions are expected to be brief and plain language is recommended and the use of jargon is discouraged. Contributions to the Research Bulletin are welcome from all researchers engaged in key research on PSET. The Department’s Editorial Committee reviews all contributions made towards the Research Bulletin, and assesses their relevance to research on PSET, before finalising which contributions should be included. The final decision to accept a contribution rest with the Editorial Committee. Research contributions and feedback on the publication, including suggestions for improvement are welcomed and can be emailed to
