FET And TVET Colleges

Since FET is just the older name for TVET, there are no differences between the two Colleges. The terms “FET” (Further Education and Training) and “TVET” (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) refer to the same sort of educational institutions and programmes. TVET stands for Technical and Vocational Education and Training. At TVET College, a student receives education and training which relates to a specific range of jobs, employment or entrepreneurial possibilities.

FET and TVET colleges are educational institutions that offer specialised education and training in a variety of vocational and technical sectors. They provide courses aimed at improving practical skills, preparing students for workforce demands, and contributing to economic growth. FET and TVET colleges, in contrast to traditional colleges, emphasize practical education, industry-relevant curriculum, and strong engagement with companies.
