Tvet Colleges in South Africa

What exactly is TVET?
Further Education and Training (FET) Colleges are now referred to as Technical Vocational and Training (TVET) colleges, this is due to an amendment made to Section 26 of the FET Amendment Act, 2013 (Act No. 1 of 2013). The concept of TVET has been introduced into the South African education and training industry as part of a drive to provide high-quality education and training that offers a wide range of learning options.

The programmes presented at False Bay TVET College are accredited by Sector Education and Training Authorities. Consult our Course pages for the relevant accreditation details
