The National Student Financial Aid Scheme has funded TVET Colleges for years because they believe a TVET qualification will equip students with occupational and vocational skills required in South Africa.
TVET Colleges have proven to enable entrepreneurial potential in students which is needed to build a strong economy.
The qualification criteria for NSFAS includes:
- You need to be a South African citizen.
- You need to be registered or intending to register on a PLP, NC(V) or Report 191 programme at any of the 50 public TVET Colleges in South Africa.
- You need to meet the financial eligibility criteria.
- If you are a returning student, you need to demonstrate proven and accepted academic performance in line with the institution’s progression policy or the progression prescriptions of the Bursary Rules and Guidelines.
- Should not be enrolling for a qualification that duplicates previous learning that was funded by the state.
- Combined gross family income of up to R350 000 per annum.
