About 40% of all students at further education and training (FET) colleges across the country are always absent from or late for class.

“Punctuality and attendance in the system is worrying. Its quite substantial, it’s about 40%, which is why we are confronting it. Some students just register and disappear, they come every month to collect their transport and accommodation subsidies from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme [NFSAS] and then disappear again.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
