Lovedale TVET College has a long and prestigious story to tell in the history of education in South Africa. Although the institution has changed shape and direction many times over the years, it has nonetheless remained an educational institution that has always had the interests of the surrounding community at heart.
Today, the Lovedale TVET College consists of three campuses, each one addressing the particular needs of the community. The history of the College is tied up in the history of each of its campuses: Alice Campus, in the little town of Alice in the Eastern Cape and the site of the original Lovedale, King Campus in King William’s Town, and Zwelitsha Campus, also in King William’s Town.
In 2002, when 152 technical colleges throughout the country were merged into 52 mega-colleges, Lovedale Public FET College was formed by the merger of the three above-mentioned institutions.
Colleges were placed under the Department of Higher Education in 2015 and once again changed their names from Further Education and Training (FET) to Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges.
