Why you should consider studying at college

Message from the Principal/CEO:
Unemployment in the Western Cape
• Is estimated at 17.2%.
• 80% of the unemployed are youth.
Don't be another statistic.
False Bay TVET College (FBC) programmes are strategically positioned to address scarce and critical skills to ensure that college graduates are trained in fields where there are good prospects of employment. This means that, with your qualification as your springboard, you can pursue a viable career that is both satisfying and lucrative.

Why you should consider studying at college
False Bay TVET College is a gateway to employment, self-employment and higher education through accessible, relevant, quality training programmes as part of lifelong learning.

At False Bay TVET College we are firmly committed to the development of you as an individual and we always encourage you to be the best you can be and to have the courage to believe in yourself and your dreams. This is the context for our youth training and development programme known as MOT, a Norwegian word that translates into courage.

At FBC we strive for excellence and encourage you to excel at your studies and urge you to participate in our on-going events and activities. If at any time you have questions that need answering or you are looking to advice or support, you can speak to our qualified and professional Student Support Officer situated at each of our campuses.

We invite you to apply for 2016. Share in our vision: to be the most successful, prestigious and respected Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College in South Africa. I look forward to seeing you on campus and wish you every success with your studies.

Yours sincerely,
