CACH Helping Thousands Of Students Seeking Placement

As the country’s institutions of higher learning and training shift into gear for the 2018 academic year, thousands of prospective students seeking placement are turning to the Central Applications Clearing House (CACH).

 

More than 21 000 inquiries had been lodged with the government run system.

 

“Because of the high volumes, resources have now be redirected in order to ensure that all people are responded to,” said the Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training Buti Manamela.

Deputy Minister Manamela visited the CACH centre in Johannesburg to inspect and get first-hand experience on the operations of the system.

 

He said contrary to popular misconception, usage of CACH is increasing.

“When you look at student queues at institutions now compared to a few years back, it shows that the system is really working well.”

 

CACH is the Department of Higher Education and Training’s online application portal designed for Grade 12 students, who are seeking admission to post-school education and training (PSET).

 

The service assists prospective students by sharing their matric results with public and private further and higher education institutions across the country, including Technical Vocational and Training (TVET) colleges, universities, Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs) and registered private higher institutions.

Institutions with open study places, technical training opportunities or apprenticeship slots then make them available to the most suitable applicants on the CACH database.

 

The service opened on Friday following the release of the 2017 matric results and will close on 28 February 2018.
