The Higher Education Department is committed to playing its role to reducing unemployment in South Africa and has announced it will provide millions in funding for community colleges to upskill adults in the country. 

 

 


The Minister of Higher Education has sent a stern warning to principals of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges regarding their mandate to promote the placement of students.


While obtaining a tertiary education qualification increases your chances of finding a job in South Africa, it does not guarantee you will find employment. The government has committed to placing unemployed graduates.


The Higher Education Department has aligned its goals to that of South Africa’s National Development Plan (NDP) which aims to reduce poverty, iniquity and unemployment by 2030. Here's how the department will look to contribute to these goals through its plans to support Community Education & Training (CET) colleges.

 


Funding is often the main barrier for thousands of individuals wanting to obtain a tertiary education. Several funding schemes look to remove this barrier and help thousands of students realise their dreams.

 


Having a matric certificate or an equivalent qualification could increase your prospects of finding a job or could make you eligible for admission into a tertiary education institution.


More than 66% of South Africans between the ages of 15-years-old and 24-years-old are unemployed.


During the third quarter of 2021, unemployment reached 34,9% in South Africa. This means that more than one-third of people living in the country do not have work. 


Bogus College operators take advantage of students who are looking to gain access to further education, leading to these students wasting years on a fake qualification.


Many people in South Africa do not have Matric, which is due to various reasons that are often out of their control so they are always looking for alternatives. People are always looking to further their education and one way to do this is through TVET Colleges.This poses the question, 'Can you do TVET College courses without a matric?'. 


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.


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.

 


Should you not meet the requirements for entry at a university, the Department of Higher Education and Training has Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges available for students to study at. 


College students are often under the impression that they’ll get a well-paying job as soon as they graduate from college. Unfortunately, with South Africa’s current unemployment rate, finding a job that soon after completing their studies remains a pipe dream for most. Some graduates are fortunate enough to find work in their field of interest soon after graduation, while others spend months looking for work; some are even willing to accept an unpaid internship to gain experience. 


A draughtsman is sometimes confused with either an architect or an engineer. These three work together as a team. A draughtsperson works with the engineer in the planning and designing of buildings whereas an architect is an overseer. Today, let’s take a closer lens into the role of a draughtsman.


Every year hundreds of thousands of students apply to universities in the hope of getting accepted in order to further their studies.


Education opens up the world. It is the key to being able to live a happy, healthy, and prosperous life.


 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.
