Parent Seminar - Empowering parents to give better career advice

Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) as a first choice.
Parent Seminar - Empowering parents to give better career advice

If there is one moment that marks when a parent has begun to send a child into the world of adult decision-making, it is surely when they first sit down together to consider career options.

What careers best suit the child? Which ones are realistic study options? And how do you choose the institution and course of study?

False Bay TVET College would like to help you make an informed decision about your child's future career choice, so that they can get the best start in life. Join us at any one of our five campuses for a free seminar to discuss False Bay TVET College as an education institution of choice at our Open Day on Saturday, 18 August 2018.
