Why choose us
Northlink College is a nationally registered TVET
Under the auspices of the National Department of Higher Education (DHET). The DHET was created in 2009, in order to advance the national vision of a coherent, comprehensive and differentiated post-school system. This post school system must contribute to the lives of individuals, the national economy and to the development of an equitable and capable South African society. The DHET will achieve its mandate by effectively planning, regulating, resourcing and co-ordinating the provision of post-school education and vocational training opportunities especially for our country’s youth. The imminent promulgation of the TVET Colleges Amendment Bill brings about a shift of functions related to the administration of TVET Colleges from the provinces to the Minister of Higher Education and Training. This function shift enables the DHET to realise the creation of a coherent post-school system and thereby comprehensively address the skills supply challenges.
The performance of the Colleges in the next five years will be guided by the targets established in the Minister’s Delivery Agreement. The Delivery Agreement is guided by Outcome 5 of the government’s Programme of Action: A skilled and capable workforce to support an inclusive growth path. Within this agreement, the Minister has committed to outputs 5. Outputs 2 and 3 are directly relevant to TVET College subsystem.
Output 2: Access to programmes leading to intermediate and higher level learning
Output 3: Access to occupationally directed programmes
