WHAT ARE FET (previously Technical) COLLEGES?

The main aim of FET Colleges is to provide high-quality education and training that offers a wide range of learning options. In doing so, FET Colleges strive towards equipping learners with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes, values and competencies that will allow them to access life-long learning opportunities and thereby ensure that they become economically-productive members of their society.

THE ROLE AND FUNCTION OF A FET COLLEGE

FET Colleges will be the first institutions to be declared Public Further Education and Training Institutions in terms of the Further Education and Training Act of 1998.
