DEI Conducting Desk Research for National Study Database

The Division for Educational Innovation (DEI) is currently conducting a desk research within several government departments, divisions, government owned companies and schools subsidized by government in order to lay the groundwork for the creation of a national study database.
The study database is part of the “Studying in the Region 2014-2015” project plan. DEI has been tasked with conducting the desk research necessary for development of this database. One of the goals of the study database is to create better matches between existing vacancies (or positions that will become vacant within a 10 year period) and students currently studying for a particular area of study. The database will provide an overview of study financing recipients, an overview of critical vacancies as well as an overview of expatriates on contract and of persons retiring within ten years in the civil service, government owned companies and subsidized schools on the island.
This project is the result of the bilateral protocol that was signed in the policy areas of Education, Culture and Science between our Honorable Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports and Minister of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands. An Action plan for 2014-2015 for the execution of the bilateral protocol as well as the project plan “Studying in the Region: Budget 2014” was also signed.
Businesses in the private sector that wish to be part of the national study database can contact Janelle Presentacion, Project Manager DEI, at 542-4594 or email at ja******************@si************.org for more information.
