In the 2018 National Certificate Vocational (NC(V)) examination results, Northlink TVET College, one of the largest TVET (Technical Vocational Education and Training) Colleges in the Western Cape, was ranked as the top performing TVET College, out of 50 TVET Colleges nationally.
Through the combined achievements of its Belhar, Bellville, Protea and Parow Campuses, Northlink TVET College achieved a national pass rate of 89.4%. The Northlink TVET College Parow Campus, was awarded top NC(V) Campus with a pass rate of 93.3%.
Says Raymond Smal, the Northlink TVET College Parow Campus Manager stated: “It’s with great pleasure that we congratulate the NC(V) students and staff of Parow Campus who contributed to this excellent achievement of having the best academic results nationally.”
Despite one of the other TVET Colleges in the Western Cape obtaining a pass rate of 87.7%, Northlink TVET College still remains “Top of its class for 2018.”
Within the College sector, NC(V) is another path to achieving a qualification equivalent to grade 12. This study path therefore gives a prospective student, who has passed a minimum of grade 9, the opportunity to complete an NC(V) in three years while being exposed to the theory and practical competencies in a specific vocational area. These vocational areas include: Safety in Society, Office Administration, Primary Health, Marketing, Finance Economics and Accounting, Tourism, Hospitality, Engineering and Related Design – Fitting and Turning, Automotive Repair and Maintenance and Fabrication (Boilermaking).
“Being ranked first in the country is truly an honour and supports our mission to
provide quality education and training to help develop our students to become
responsible citizens in our Province and our Country,” says Mr Leon Beech,
Chief Executive Officer and Principal of Northlink TVET College.
