TVET Colleges in South Africa

TVET Colleges offer National Certificates (Vocational) [NC(V)] and Nated (N) qualifications. The training programmes provided at TVET colleges are aimed at developing vocational skills that are needed in the South African economy.

There are currently 50 public colleges, with 264 learning campuses across the country able to cater for approximately 650 000 students.


The National Certification Vocational [NC(V)] is offered in a variety of vocational fields and will take three years to complete. An NC(V) provides both theory and practical experience in a particular field. NC(V) Level 4 is on the same level as the National Senior Certificate (NQF Level 4), but is more closely aligned to the workplace.

Some of the fields in which NC(V) is offered are:

  • finance
  • economics and accounting
  • engineering and related design
  • civil engineering and building construction
  • office administration
  • primary agriculture
  • process plant operation
  • process instrumentation
  • electrical infrastructure construction
  • management
  • marketing.

 

You need to have at least passed Grade 9 to enrol in NC(V) Level 2 qualification. Each of these qualifications also has other entry requirements. You are required to have, for instance, Mathematics at Grade 9 for entry into engineering-related courses.


NATED qualifications are offered in a variety of areas such as business management, mechanical engineering and others. NATED qualifications are also offered per semester and trimester, so you will have the opportunity to apply at various times.
