Centres of specialisation : what is needed to be a TVET centre of specialisation?

19 Nov 2019

For quite some time Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges have, incorrectly, been seen as inferior to other higher education institutions. However, due to recent developments in the higher education sector, particularly the recently released Fees Commission Report, there is now an intention that TVET colleges become institutions of first choice for young South Africans. To this end, there is an expectation for TVET colleges to produce graduates that are competent and employable. Parents, students and potential employers therefore expect high levels of competency from colleges. In particular, from the teaching staff employed at these colleges.
