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.
