According to law, all private schools must register at their local provincial education departments. All our schools are registered or are in the process of being registered. This process is time consuming, because facilities must be created and staff must be employed first before the process may commence. All private schools must also be accredited by Umalusi, the Council for Quality Assurance in General & Further Education and Training.


Tshwane Institute of Technology is a private Further Education and Training College in South Africa (FET). Private Colleges are operated under the prescriptions of Chapter 6 of the Continuing Education and Training Act 16 of 2006.  The Director-General of the Department of Higher Education and Training (or his designate) is the Registrar of private colleges.
The South African education system is administered by the Department of Basic Education and the Department of Higher Education and Training. The Department of Basic Education (abbreviated DBE), administers school education from Grade R to Grade 12. The Department of Higher Education and Training (abbreviated DHET) administers Post-School Education and training.

FET as post-school education and training

This band of education and training is also referred to as ‘post-school’, meaning that it refers to education and training that takes place after leaving school, even if only with a Grade 9 completed.  The only age restriction for a person wishing to study at FET level is that the person should be 16 years or older.  The target student group is therefore responsible senior adolescents and adults who are serious about following an education and training programme with a view to acquiring marketable skills.

FET Colleges cater for the widest range of education and training opportunities at post-school level.
