Using CACH to recruit students:

The aim of CACH is to ensure that as many potential students as possible are appropriately placed for 2017. Universities, TVET Colleges, registered private higher and further education institutions and organisations offering learnerships are invited to make use of the CACH service to recruit students. We shall be inviting applicants to sign up from 3 January 2017 onwards. General lists per province of applicants looking for places will be forwarded to the registered contacts at institutions early in 2017.

Publicly funded institutions can log on to the CACH website using the institution portal and search for applicants to fill available places. Login details have been sent to the Registrars of all public universities, Rectors of all public TVET colleges and the CEO's of all SETAs.

Private institutions that wish to use the system should contact cach@dhet.gov.za with details of their requirements and include proof of the institution’s registration with the DHET and the accreditation of the programmes for which they are recruiting. CACH applicants will be advised not to consider registering for programmes that are not accredited.
