Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

False Bay TVET College is mandated by the Department of Higher Education & Training (DHET) to assist students in seeking workplaces to gain relevant working experience. The WIL department engages with industry to establish partnerships for internships and workplace-based learning opportunities for students and graduates.
