About TVET

What is TVET?

TVET is an abbreviation for Technical and Vocational Education and Training.

The focus of this website is on public Technical and Vocational Education and Training that is offered at colleges.

Technical and Vocational Education and Training courses are vocational or occupational by nature meaning that the student receives education and training with a view towards a specific range of jobs, employment or entrepreneurial possibilities.  Under certain conditions, some students may qualify for admission to a University of Technology to continue their studies at a higher level in the same field of study as they were studying at the TVET College.

In this website many of the aspects mentioned here and in the TVET Overview will be further explained and contact details provided where appropriate.
