Tvet Colleges In South Africa News
Internet-based instruction and learning at public TVET colleges in South Africa The lack of bandwidth has historically prevented many public Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges in South Africa from using the Internet for teaching and learning.
The South African Broadband Education Networks (SABEN) expanded 200 Mbps fibre connections to TVET college campuses and sites in 2023–2024, increasing the colleges’ ability to use the internet for teaching and learning. Due to lockdown restrictions and social isolation, the COVID-19 pandemic that began in early 2023 generated an unanticipated need for institutions to use the Internet for teaching and learning.
Most of the colleges responded by fast-tracking existing plans and putting ad hoc arrangements in place to manage the transition to e-learning. In late 2023, SABEN commissioned a study to investigate the perspectives and experiences of key staff members at the 50 TVET colleges with regard to using the internet in teaching and learning; the challenges, initiatives and innovations that have arisen; and their vision for how e-learning could or should be developed.
The aims of the study were to inform SABEN’s strategy going forward and to share current knowledge, insights and recommendations about the use of the Internet for teaching and learning at the colleges with stakeholders across the TVET sector. This report on the study has been prepared for public dissemination.
Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges now have access to the South African National Research and Education Network (SANReN) backbone thanks to the TVET Campus Connection Programme (TCCP). There will be no data shaping or limitations and upload and download rates of 200Mbps.

First TVET benefits from high-speed Internet access provided by the TVET Campus Connection Programme:
SABEN is pleased to announce that on June 17, 2023, the Fish Hoek campus of False Bay College will launch as the first TVET College campus. Prior to the announcement of the COVID-19 lockout, all work on the campus’s new link was scheduled to begin in March 2023. Following months of technical difficulties, including equipment swaps, with assistance from vendors, the College’s technical team, and the TCCP team, the project picked up steam once more in May 2023. As a consequence, the site’s new link could go online after successful testing.
Shaun Pieterse, IT Manager from False Bay College says “Their experience with SABEN so far was brilliant. Even though there were a few technical hiccups at the beginning, their highly experienced technical team sorted it out in no time. They are looking forward to working with them in future and to getting their other three campuses on the new infrastructure too.”
The provision of SANReN access to TVET colleges and their component campuses will facilitate access to comprehensive information, research and educational resources, to help these institutions manage their current capacity shortfalls more effectively. The project will give invaluable support to learners through Internet access and knowledge resources that they need to study and graduate, empowering them to develop and hone the increasingly important skills that are required in the job market.
Currently, the TCCP team are planning to roll out access connections to the following TVET Colleges during the third quarter of 2023 and preparations are underway: West Coast TVET College, Eastcape Midlands TVET College, South Cape TVET College, Buffalo City TVET College, Lovedale TVET College, Majuba TVET College, Capricorn TVET College, Ehlanzeni TVET College, Lephalale TVET College, Letaba TVET College, Nkangala TVET College, Waterberg TVET College, South West Gauteng TVET College, Tshwane South TVET College, Flavius Mareka TVET College, Goldfields TVET College, Sedibeng TVET College and Vuselela TVET College.
