The colleges of education have been the forgotten educational sector in South Africa. At the time of Union, the colleges were belatedly appended to the Education Departments for administrative purposes and they have remained associated with the school sector ever since. In order to aspire to tertiary status, some colleges have linked with universities, in addition to their links with the Education Departments. Although there have been decided advantages in these arrangements, it has also meant that the colleges have never established a raison d'etre in right.
