Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is post-school education and training that prepares you for your career of choice.

As part of the Higher Education system, TVET colleges accept students who’ve completed Grade 9, 10, 11 or 12 at school. University post-graduates also enrol for courses at TVET colleges. Being employability focussed, TVET colleges are most effective at preparing students for employment in a very wide range of fields.

Courses vary from engineering (construction, electrical and mechanical), to ICT and computer networking. There’s a full range of courses serving the hospitality, food service and tourism industries, haircare, early childhood development, management (financial, human resources, marketing, administration) to mention a few.

The TVET colleges website has added functionality to support existing and prospective students planning to study at a TVET college. You can use your cell phone to find a course of your choice, the appropriate qualification and where you can study the course. Taking control of your future has never been easier or convenient.
