Many of our students ask us what exactly an FET College is…
We thought we would try and give a brief explanation of the word and the world of FET Colleges.
FET stands for Further Education and Training.
In South Africa the education department is divided into three broad categories:
- General education – our school years until grade 10
- Further Education and Training – the final three years of high school, or completing training courses with the equivalent NQF level.
- Higher education – this is the training you receive from a university.
FET Colleges are designed to offer a very wide range of courses to a very large group of people.
This is mainly possible by making use of supported distance learning – which makes it possible for students to complete their studies while working during the day.
FET Courses range anywhere from Sports courses to Accounting Studies.
