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.

TVET College students

Many people are still unaware of the study opportunities government has provided through public Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges.

Terminology related to education in South Africa can often be very confusing, particularly when learners and prospective students need to consider the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) and talk of accreditation and registration.

Do you need financial assistance in order to study further? Pursuing a higher education through a Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College might be the answer.
