Coastal KZN TVET College
Nestled on the East coast of South Africa is the lush, green province of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), well known for its warm weather for most of the year. This is primarily thanks to the warm Mozambique current, which flows south, parallel to the province, carrying warm water from the Equator.
This is the home of Coastal KZN TVET College. With a total of 8 campuses, this vast institution’s footprint spans across most of the province. The main strength of this TVET college is how it reaches deep into the most rural parts of the province.

The Ethekwini Metropolitan Municipality hosts several campuses, such as the Durban Campus in Umbilo, Swinton Campus in Mobeni, Umbumbulu Campus in Amanzimtoti and the twin campuses of Umlazi located in sections BB and V of the sprawling township. Ubuhle Bogu Campus, which means “beauty of the coast”, ” is the KwaQiko community’s beacon.
