Message from the Principal

Karin HendricksWelcome to False Bay TVET College.

Thank you for choosing to study at False Bay TVET College (FBC). We hope that the academic experience will exceed your expectations and that you will enjoy your time with us.

At FBC we are as ambitious as you are. Our vision is to be the leading Technical Vocational Education and Training College in skills development in South Africa. We take exceptional pride in our state-of-the-art campus facilities and expert staff who are there to you in your journey to career success.

As we believe in harnessing the power of technology and innovation to inspire learning, each campus at FBC has an Open Learning Centre where you can use the internet to download course material, do research or submit class assignments.

Research shows that academic learning and personal development do not happen separately and therefore, at FBC, we are as committed to your personal development as an individual as we are to providing you with relevant skills and the latest knowledge you need for your professional development.

A very important part of this co-curricular approach to learning is our youth training and development programme known as MOT, a Norwegian word meaning ‘courage’.

MOT is offered as a platform to help you develop your social and life skills, such as communication, decision-making, leadership, problem-solving and crisis management – all valuable assets that will help you to develop healthy relationships, confidence and self-esteem.

Relationship-building and healthy activity are vital aids in academic studies. At FBC, you will be encouraged to participate in social events and activities. Our choir, debate team and sports teams have fared very well at the provincial level and we offer many other extramural activities to help you relax away from the rigours of studies. Our campus cafeterias provide healthy meals and opportunities for informal socialising.

There are two key support departments that we urge you to connect with at the College. The Work Integrated Learning Department will assist you when you are ready to transition into the world of work. Sign up for the support services they offer to make your transition to employment a success. For graduates seeking self-employment, the Centre for Entrepreneurship supports those who require mentoring and coaching with business start-up ideas.

We are extremely proud of our Student Representative Council and we continually invest in the development of our SRC and student leadership. Our students are represented at all governance levels including the Academic Board and College Council.

On this website, you will find details about the College Quality Policy Statement, the programmes on offer and other information useful to your daily experience at False Bay TVET College.

If at any time you need information or are looking for advice or support, feel free to consult one of our qualified and professional Student Support Officers located at each campus. 

I look forward to seeing you on campus and wish you every success with your studies.

Yours in Education,

Karin Hendricks
Acting Principal
