Public TVET Colleges gives a very huge range of courses/programmes that have been developed to respond to the scarce skills needed by employers. Courses differ in duration from a short course of a few hours to formal diploma courses of three years.

Naturally the costs of the courses also differ considerably but it is important to recall that Department of Higher Education and Training programmes are subsidised by 80% of the delivery cost and for the remaining 20% that would be paid by the student, many full bursaries are obtainable.
