A FET college is an institution that has registered with the Department of Higher Education (DHET) in order to provide vocational or occupational training in a specific field.
FET is the abbreviation for Further Education and Training. With FET colleges you are able to study a specific skill set, such as Business Management, rather than the regular curriculum offered in high school.
As these courses are subject specific, according to the students' needs, they better prepare the student for work in the field once they have completed the course.
Simply put, the education system in South Africa consists of three broad bands. These are referred to as general education, Further Education and Training, and higher education.
General education is the first 9 years of school. Higher education is university level modules, focused on theory.
Further Education and training is the section that falls in between these two bands, and is usually skills based.
Make sure YOU get the kind of education YOU need.
Only students over the age of 16 can apply for FET training. We talk about the training being vocational or skills based because, the structure of the courses are designed to give the student a brief understanding of the theory, but also, wherever possible, provide practical experience.
