The Seychelles Institute of Technology (SIT) is a Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institution established as a Professional Centre from January 2015 under the Tertiary Education Act (TEA) 2011. SIT operates under the aegis of the Ministry of Education.

Founded in 2006, SIT offers training in the following modes: full time campus-based, worked based and apprenticeships. The types of training are geared towards learning for work as well as learning for further and higher level of studies.

SIT is that Professional Centre which leads learners to acquire practical skills, expertise and understanding necessary for employment in a particular occupation, trade or group of occupations. It works in partnership with its key stakeholders such as businesses and other trade organizations.

SIT forms part of the ten i-hubs selected by UNESCO-UNEVOC in 2019. The new motto of SIT is " Training for Excellence and Opportunities". SIT is a TVET provider which encourages its learners to carry out innovative activities. Project based learning (PBL)is included on the learners timetable. This allows them to carry out innovative practices, conduct research and use the time to turn ideas into products etc. The strong innovative practice of SIT is the installation of rain water tanks to collect water for domestic use and cleaning of vehicles.
