Short Courses


Costly mistakes can be made when key decisions are made on the basis of one’s industry or business experience rather on the findings of new and relevant research.  However, there is a dearth of research expertise within Caribbean organisations.  The research courses developed by CPDLL are designed to develop skills in the identification of research objectives, research design, both qualitative and quantitative methodologies and data analysis and presentation. Since specialists will teach research methods from the ground up, no previous experience or training will be required for beginners’ level courses.

Practical Research for Policy and Government Professionals

Practical Research for Policy and Government Professionals

Research is essential to meaningful planning and policy development in the public sector. Well-executed research significantly enhances the probability of accurate definition of stakeholder issues and challenges and facilitates the identification of robust solutions for all key stakeholder groups. This course seeks to develop critical competencies in the scientific and practical execution of policy-based and government research for various service and operational areas. These competencies will range from the development of research objectives and the crafting of research designs and plans, to the implementation of various research methodologies and other related research procedures to assist in policy-formulation and execution.
