There are 50 registered and accredited public TVET Colleges which operate on more than 364 campuses spread across the rural and urban areas of South Africa.

TVET colleges are suited to students who are in search of practical training. At the end of their studies at a TVET college, students will in theory be trained to be fully functional workers in a skilled trade.

The minimum requirement to enter a TVET college is that you have passed grade 9 in high school, which will qualify you for a NCV course.

So How do TVET Colleges Applications Work?

It is important to note that TVET colleges have different application periods which are semester, trimester and a full year of study. 

Here are how the different application processes work:

Full Year 

Applications can be made either online or submitted to the institution. This will require you to register and reapply each year that you are required to participate in the programme you enrolled in.

Semester

Semesters are when colleges split the academic year into two parts, consisting of roughly 20 weeks each. Between the two parts, students go on a break that varies from around 2-3 weeks to prepare themselves for the following semester. 

Students are then required to register and submit applications before the beginning of the next semester.

Trimester

Trimesters are when a college divides its academic year into three-parts. The three parts amount to around 12 to 13 weeks each. After each session, students go on a break and then return for the following trimester. 

Students are then allowed to switch their timetables 3 times a year and will need to apply at the beginning of each trimester.
