The East and South African-German Centre for Educational Methodologies and Management (CERM-ESA) is one of ten African-German Centres of Excellence spread across the continent. The African Excellence programme funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) aims at producing highly qualified future managers and leaders in Africa and each centre provides a link between African and German higher education institutions. Initially, the focus of CERM-ESA was on supervision support, scholarships for Master’s and Doctoral students and research. This focus has been extended and now includes teaching and learning and community engagement. It is this wider vision of CERM-ESA which initiated the CABLES project. The CERM-ESA Capacity Building Programme for Lecturers and Supervisors (CABLES) programme is designed to support academics participating in DAAD funded Centres of African Excellence throughout Africa.

The just completed 4th CERM-ESA research school took place in the friendly city of Port Elizabeth- South Africa. The 2nd Cohort Master’s students were accompanied by the Project leader, Prof. Chang’ach, the project coordinator, Dr. Susan Kurgat and one of the project supervisors, Prof. John Boit. The 4th Research school hosted at the Nelson Mandela University was an enriching and productive experience that will enable the students to make significant progress with their research.
