SORT IT for participants
SORT IT combines research and training, so participants learn by doing. You can expect to complete your research within one year, a publishable paper ready for submission to a peer reviewed journal and a one page brief describing the policy implications of the research .
There are 2, one-week workshops given back to back to shape the research question and set up the data collection and analysis process. These are led by experienced researchers who do some didactic training, but the majority of time is spent one-on-one with facilitators.

A third and final week of workshop is done 10 months after the first, and is spent preparing an evidence brief for policy-makers and a research article to be submitted for publication.
Participants also have the opportunity to become trainers.
