Tvet colleges seeks to function as a high quality, transformed and responsive system. The government of South Africa uses this system to promote the integration of education and training, as well as the enhancement of learner mobility and progression, to ultimately meet human resource needs. TVET systems are built to address these needs and to further promote personal, social, civic and economic development in their country. Their mission is to provide people with intermediate to highlevel skills that would lay a foundation for higher education, facilitate the transition from school to work and develop autonomous lifelong learners.

The Department has released the TVET calendar for 2023. This calendar has had to take into account the delays in the academic year as well as the exam and results release. Minister Nzimande also gave updates on the TVET sector recently.
