CACH provides unsuccessful applicants with access to career development services and, where possible, an opportunity to access spaces still available within all universities, Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges or any Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA) learnerships, without having to travel to institutions to try and find a space.

Applicants have until Thursday, 31 March 2022, to submit their tertiary education applications through the CACH system.
