Abstract:The 'triple challenge' of poverty, inequality and unemployment weighs heavily on South Africa's social, political and economic fabric. Expectations have been high that the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges can make a pivotal contribution to counter these challenges. Despite laudable increases in TVET enrolment, the demand for post school further education and training (FET) band qualifications from young people not in education, employment or training remains insufficiently met. It is, furthermore, vital to secure adequate quality in TVET programmes which depend very much on the competence and commitment of college lecturers. This collective volume offers papers on the history and development of TVET programmes, as well as its current issues and challenges.
