What is a TVET college?

Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges have been established by government to respond to the scarce skills shortages in the country. A TVET qualification equips students with the vocational and occupational skills needed to find employment in South Africa. The colleges offer a variety of technical programmes that vary in duration allowing learners to choose between short courses and formal diploma programmes.

Who is NSFAS?

NSFAS is government's leading agent for administering funds to underprivileged students in South Africa for the purpose of increasing access to higher education. Through its procedures and systems NSFAS identifies students who meet the criteria to receive financial support and dispenses funding accordingly.

NSFAS Funded Training

Both these government backed entities are working together to promote further education amongst poorer students. As a result NSFAS funds Ministerial approved programmes at TVET colleges.
