Important factors to bear in mind when studying at NTEK


NTEK is a distance learning Institution with day and evening class assistance.  Thus we have limited seating for day and evening class assistance available as we provide individual assistance to each student and have a maximum of 20 students per class.   It is therefore imperative that you book and enrol well in advance for these classes as we operate on a first come first serve basis. FET Calendar as supplied by the Department of Education is included on the Web for your perusal.  However detail roster for the classes will be finalised based on the enrolments received and communicated to each learner well in advance.


We provide assistance to students for specific questions related to work assignment and/or homework.  The student need to formulate his/her question and send it to admin@ntek.co.za  and the relevant lecturer will contact the student ASAP to discuss and correspond to the related question via telephone and email. 

Additional one on one classes and assistance can be arranged and need to be arranged at our offices or by sending us an email to admin@ntek.co.za and a time frame to suite all parties will be scheduled by our Administration Department.  Please NOTE the cost for additional individual one on one assistance is not included in the standard enrolment fee.



It must be noted that N1 to N3 courses are available as day and evening class assistance depending on the amount of student registered for a specific subject but all N1 to N3 courses are available as distance learning.  All subjects for N4 to N6 will as a rule  be done as distance learning.  However - Depending on the amount of students registered for the more popular N4 - N6 subject it may be available as evening assistance classes.
