Here's The 2024 Calendar For Community Colleges



Community colleges are crucial in offering adults opportunities beyond traditional schooling. Here's the calendar for community colleges for the 2024 academic year.



The official 2024 calendar for Community Education and Training (CET) Colleges has been released, providing clarity on the academic year's schedule, including commencement and conclusion dates, holiday breaks, and examination periods.

Community education and training colleges were established in South Africa to address the educational needs of post-school youth and adults, aiming to improve their employability and educational foundation.

These colleges offer opportunities for further learning pathways, including entry into Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges and universities. They particularly serve individuals who may not meet the admission criteria of traditional higher education institutions, providing a supportive environment for skill development and qualification acquisition for personal and professional growth.

Key Dates 

Term 1 classes for community classes commenced on 17 January and continued for 10 weeks before concluding on 20 March 2024. There will be 46 days of teaching. 

Term 2 starts on 3 April, concluding on 14 June. Term 3 kicks off on 9 July and concludes on 20 September. 

The academic year wraps up in Term 4, starting on 1 October and ending on 11 December. 

The colleges close for the year on 13 December. In total, students can expect 205 lecturing days and 209 staff service days throughout the year.


More About CET Colleges

Community colleges are established across all nine provinces, encompassing 3,279 adult education and training centres.

Initially targeting individuals ineligible for TVET colleges or universities, these institutions aim to broaden youth and adult participation in community education and training, aiming to reach one million participants by 2030.
