TVET colleges


There are fifty registered and accredited public TVET Colleges in South Africa which operate on more than 264 campuses spread across the rural and urban areas of the country that you can choose from.

The 2023 academic year has now come to an end and result anxiety is in the air. Here's the schedule for TVET college results and when they will be released.

TVET colleges play a critical role in developing skilled individuals into the artisans, engineers and business people of the future. The higher education department has revealed how the TVET college programme will progress in 2024. 

There are more than 50 TVET colleges with over 200 campuses located across South Africa. Government wants to increase enrolment at these institutions and has outlined plans for expansion.

The recent statistics released by the Department of Higher Education and Training paint a worrisome picture of a substantial decline in student enrolments within the TVET college sector.

The Department of Higher Education and Training has implemented a number of strategies to boost TVET colleges and the College Sector as a whole. A significant amount of money is required for the plans to succeed, which the Department is unfortunately lacking.

Most institutions of higher learning have commenced with registrations, and will soon kick-start the 2023 academic year. Higher Education has made necessary preparations and also reflected on the year-end examinations of one of its sectors.


While universities remain a popular option for many people wanting to further their education, Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges are a great option for gaining skills.
