LETTER: We should encourage matriculants to consider TVET colleges
Not going to university is no sign of failure
Many of the latest batch of matriculants did not receive high enough marks to further their studies at universities. However, they should not be deterred. Failing matric is not the end of the world, and they can pursue their education through technical and vocational education and training (TVET) colleges if they so wish. This is what must occupy their minds instead of feeling sorry for themselves to the point of depression.
Our education system must be changed to place more emphasis on TVET colleges. Potential students should be taught that attending college is not a sign of failure...
