Sparrow FET College was founded in 2010 with the vision of addressing the skills deficit in South Africa through a specialised vocational training education model. At Sparrow FET College, three pillars form the structure of our training programmes: theory, practice and real-world application.
Together with industry, Sparrow FET College aim to provide learners with internships that prepare them for future employment in their chosen career.
We take great care to guide learners through every step of the process. A registered psychometrist assesses students and makes recommendations about which programmes would be best suited to them, while job coaches are on hand at both the placement stages and when learners are fully employed. This helps learners to adjust to the reality of full-time employment, while still having someone they know at hand, should they need advice or assistance.
