South Cape TVET College Application 2023-2024
South Cape TVET College, also referred to as SCC, is situated across the famous Garden Route, the Little and Central Karoo, the catchment area of South Cape TVET College is 80 822 km², which is the largest of the six TVET Colleges in the Western Cape.
SCC has six Campuses across the Garden Route, Klein Karroo District and Central Karoo District. Campuses are the Beaufort West Campus, Bitou Campus in Plettenberg Bay, George Campus, Hessequa Campus in Riversdale, Mossel Bay Campus and the Oudtshoorn Campus.
The management and coordination of the campuses happen at the central office, located in George. All senior management team members are centrally located there.
The institution was established in the year 2000 and was the pilot site for College mergers in South Africa. SCC comprises of the amalgamation of the following colleges:
- George Technical College, founded in 1968,
- Oudtshoorn Technical College, founded in 1981,
- South Cape Technical Institute in George, which started its first activities in the early 1980s, and
- Mossel Bay College which started operating in 1993 as a satellite of the Oudtshoorn Technical College.
After the successful integration of the SCC amalgamation, other college mergers followed suit from 2002 onwards.
Changes such as the South Cape TVET College merger were not without their growing pains. Staff had to adapt to change as there was now a Central Office, and each previous Technical College was now a Campus of a bigger Institution and could no longer make autonomous decisions.
In 2007 a new study path, the National Certificate Vocational (NCV) field was introduced to Colleges. These qualifications were targeted towards youth who left school and had not matriculated but had passed Grade 9. SCC enthusiastically piloted approximately 10 of these new programmes with intakes at the George, Mossel Bay and Oudtshoorn Campuses. With these new qualifications available, the National N Diploma Courses were then phased out at all Campuses at the time but were later re-introduced due to policy amendments.
Within just one year the College had narrowed down its programme offerings to nine courses. In so doing, the idea was to create niche campuses. This led to infrastructure being erected at specific campuses to focus on specific courses within the identified niche. Oudtshoorn Campus had large kitchens built to serve as the number one choice for Hospitality Studies. Mossel Bay Campus quickly became the best option to study Engineering Courses with its large electrical, building and mechanical workshops installed.
Open and closing date: The South Cape College Online Application is likely to close on 30 Sep 2023 for some programmes and 30 Oct 2023 for all programmes
