Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training Mduduzi Manana attends College of Cape Town prize giving

According to the speech by Dr. Blade Nzimande at the launch of the White Paper for Post School Education and Training in Pretoria on 16 January 2014, "over 3.4 million of the country's young people between the ages of 15 and 24 are not in employment, education or training and a strategy is required to pull them out of the doldrums of poverty and misery." One of the ways that government aims to remedy this situation is to encourage the youth to improve and develop their skills at Technical and Vocational Education and Training Colleges (formerly known as FET Colleges). At Dr. Nzimande's official address at the opening of the FET College Summit in September 2010, he declared that government would begin its effort at "making public FET colleges institutions of excellence" and "challenge the widespread perception that they are poorly resourced, second-choice institutions". The College of Cape Town has taken the responsibility to deliver on this mandate by implementing various improvement strategies. One of the strategies is to collaborate with TVET Colleges from abroad and participate in skills competitions nationally and internationally.
