KwaZulu Natal Colleges, Contacts and Bursaries

Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges in South Africa provide important opportunities for qualifying in different careers. 


  • There are fifty registered and accredited public TVET Colleges in South Africa which operate on more than 264 campuses spread across the rural and urban areas of the country. Public TVET Colleges are established and operated under the authority of the Continuing Education and Training Act 16 of 2006 and report to the Department of Higher Education and Training.Each Province has an office that provides specialised professional support to the public TVET Colleges in that province.
  • Public TVET Colleges are subsidised by the state with approximately R6 billion per year.
  • There are more than 650 000 students in public TVET Colleges.


  • The Department of Higher Education and Training offers bursaries which are available for National Certificate Vocational courses and courses at public TVET Colleges to students who meet the criteria. These bursaries are not loans. The bursaries are administered by the National Student Financial Aid Service (NSFAS).  Other bursaries are also available, which will vary from college to college. Prospective students should enquire at the college at which you plan to enroll as to what bursaries are available for the course that you would like to study.
  • During 2015 approximately 200 000 students at TVET Colleges benefitted from DHET bursaries administered by NSFAS.
  • Department of Higher Education and Training, TVET College bursaries that are administered by the NSFAS, are available but are subject to two important criteria:
  1. The prospective student will be required to undergo a ‘means test’ that will indicate that the student really does need financial assistance. A means test is not an actual test that you must be afraid of – it’s usually questions about your personal situation in order to see if you are someone who must be assisted.
  2. That the student has a good academic performance record.
  • Prospective students who believe that they may meet these criteria should contact their nearest public TVET College.  The college will provide the application forms and oversee the application process.

Modes of Delivery

Different colleges may offer qualifications in different ways – this is referred to as a ‘mode of delivery’. Some colleges also offer blended learning (e-learning) facilities for some course content. A number of the larger campuses have Open Learning Centres.  Further information can be given by the college on this aspect when applying or enrolling for course admission.

What are these Qualifications Worth?

In an effort to ensure that courses are relevant to the needs of commerce and industry, public colleges go to great lengths to secure linkages and partnerships with key role-players in commerce and industry and with the Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETA’s). A number of colleges have a management division devoted to this aspect.

 Job Shadowing and Practical Workplace Exposure

Public TVET colleges try as far as possible to facilitate job shadowing and practical workplace opportunities for top performing students. Many campuses also operate simulated enterprises to augment the need for practical exposure related to the course of study.

International Exchange

In an increasingly globalised labour market, a number of public TVET Colleges have international partnerships with similar institutions in various parts of the world. This ensures that education and training is internationally benchmarked with best practice in diverse international settings

The following is a comprehensive list of contact information for colleges in KwaZulu-Natal.

  1. Hi im nomcebo, i applied last year january bt i ddnt got replied

    1. Hi Nomcebo
      It’s important that you follow up with the people who interviewed you within 2 months. You have left it for so late – that’s very naughty and irresponsible of you. If I were you, I would contact them again and inform them that you have learnt alot about yourself in the past year. Tell them you have grown and that you wish to reapply for an opportunity they may have for you.
      Complaining about something in the past is stupid – don’t do it. Move on and find a new groove.
      Next time you go for an interview make sure you get back to the company within one month and ask them if you were successful. If you weren’t – you are responsible for asking them why and what you can do to be successful next time. Ask them for advice and criticism so that you can grow and be successful.
      Good luck!
