FET is an abbreviation for Further Education and Training.

Further Education and Training courses are vocational or occupational by nature meaning that the student receives education and training with a view towards a specific range of jobs or employment possibilities.  Under certain conditions, some students may qualify for admission to a University of Technology to continue their studies at a higher level in the same field of study as they were studying at the FET College.

 
campus

The town of Lehurutshe is a township with no central business or industrial centres, The small businesses that are currently operating in the area are mostly one-man enterprises. These small enterprises do not create efficient job opportunities for the community and most of its inhabitants must find work in nearby towns.

The campus was previously a college of education where technical and business studies educators were trained. The campus offers training opportunities to some of the very remote rural areas within the Ngaka Modiri Molema District. The campus has hostel facilities that can accommodate up to 380 students.

The Lehurutshe Campus and The Mafikeng Campus have been offering end-user computing to 400 learners at NQF Level 3. This is done in partnership with the municipalities, the ISETT-SETA and SPL Communications.
