Govt to Transform FET Colleges

The Department of Higher Education and Training says that South Africa’s beleaguered FET colleges should prepare for a dramatic shake-up to address the country’s dire skills shortages

The Minister of Higher Education and Training, Blade Nzimande, says that South Africa’s beleaguered Further Education and Training (FET) colleges should prepare for a dramatic shake-up to address the country’s dire skills shortages.

Nzimande says that his department envision a complete transformation of South Africa’s higher education system, currently characterised by enrolment rates at universities that are almost three times as high as those at colleges.

The department launched the Green Paper on Post-School Education, which intends to transfer more power to college councils which have the capacity to govern themselves, while ‘weaker colleges will be steered and supported centrally to a greater extent’.
