TVET

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. TVET colleges offer a popular alternative to university studies for students who were not accepted to study a degree. The number of TVET colleges is increasing rapidly, providing students with marketable skills and the ability to do essential jobs as artisans.

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.

TVET colleges offer artisans course, and South Africa is in great need of such skills in most industries

As matriculants await National Senior Certificate results, its important that they know the options that they have post matric.

The Department of Higher Education and Training has mentioned that our country is in need of certain skills, and there is a massive shortage of artisans in South Africa. 

You might be considering to go to a TVET college for you vocational certificate, please read for further details.

 

 After completing school, many students would like to further their education. This in the hope of gaining skills that would make them employable in the South African job market.
