EDITORIAL - NC(V)

TVET Colleges cater for different types of students and their individual educational and training needs. For starters, there are those who require preparation to enter the workplace. Then, there are those who want to pursue self-employment, while others aspire to obtain a university degree. There are also those who need reskilling or upskilling from present competency levels and those who need to start a new career pathway due to personal or circumstantial reasons. Whatever a student’s motivation to study, colleges have flexible and diverse course offerings that range from full qualifications that could take a number of years to complete to short courses stretching over as little as only one week. For instance, there is the National Certificate (Vocational), and Vuselela TVET College is currently offering a menu of eight programmes to choose from.


NC(V) is offered at Levels 2, 3 and 4 of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). The duration for each level is 1 year. As such it has been designed to provide both theory and practical experience in various vocational fields. The practical component of study may take place in the workplace or in a simulated environment. Students therefore have the opportunity to experience work situations during their period of study.


On Levels 2, 3 and 4 of the NC(V) the following combination of subjects are offered:


Three compulsory subjects: Fundamentals
• Language – English that will also be the Language of Teaching and Learning
• Mathematics or Mathematical Literacy (Mathematics is compulsory for all Engineering subjects)
• Life Orientation


Four vocational subjects:
These subjects are linked to a common vocational discipline, for example Electrical Engineering. The subject combinations in each of the programmes provide a high degree of specialisation for a particular economic sector.


The following programmes are offered at the College:

  • Civil Engineering and Building Construction
  • Electrical Infrastructure Construction - with an exciting new subject namely: Renewable Energy! This new subject is the latest addition to the vocational specialisation options offered in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges and has been developed for students who want to learn more about renewable energy generation and the technologies related therewith
  • Engineering and Related Design
  • Primary Agriculture
  • Finance, Economics & Accounting
  • Office Administration
  • Hospitality

A person who wants to do NC(V) must have a Grade 9 certificate. It does not matter what the subjects are, as long as he/she has a Grade 9 certificate.

Applications for 2018 are open from 1 October to 30 November 2017. There is only a January intake for NC(V) programmes.
