Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges, previously FET Colleges, provide students with after-school education should they not go on to attend a traditional university. TVET colleges offer courses in a wide variety of fields, with a focus on giving students marketable and practical skills. This is of great importance as there are many professions that society depends on and yet very few people are studying them.
