TVET colleges offer an extremely wide range of vocational courses, preparing students for a number of careers. There are four main types of qualifications offered at TVET colleges: the National Certificate Vocational, NC(V) qualifications, the Report 191 Programmes, the National Introductory Certificate (N4) and National Certificates (N4).

National Certificate Vocational – NC(V) 

NC(V) programmes begin after grade 9 and are typically three-year programmes that take you from an NQF level 2 qualification (grade 9) to an NQF level 4 qualification. This is the same level as a traditional matric, which means that you are able to apply to study at most universities of technology and to some university courses.

NC(V) programmes consist of seven subjects, two recognised languages, one mathematical subject, life orientation and three elective subjects. The elective subjects are where most of your specialised education and training will take place. Once you have completed an NC(V) qualification, you are able to work in your field as a qualified professional or study further towards a higher certificate, national diploma or bachelor of technology degree.
