There’s no denying that COVID-19 has rocked the economy. Companies that were around since before we were born have closed, the national airline has been grounded, and the transport industry was literally brought to a standstill when workers were told to stay at home. The global economy has slowed, reducing exports, forcing prices lower and drying up demand. Sales in many industries are lower as people try to save more and spend less.
 


With the addition of an online application system, students are now able to apply online to study with False Bay TVET College. Semester 2 classes start 14 July.
