NAACAM and the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) are the lead national partners of High Gear, an exciting initiative managed by IYF that is advancing South Africa’s public TVET college system.

High Gear draws on industry knowledge and skills imperatives —along with IYF curricula enhancementtools— to strengthen the market relevance of select public TVET college courses. Ultimately, High Gear aims to demonstrate a model for greater industry involvement in TVET course design and delivery that generates enthusiasm from TVET educators and industry, while also generating positive returns for young people and employers.
