Online Application Frequently Asked Questions
What is a National Certificate Vocational (NCV)?
Since January 2007, The National Certificate (Vocational) replaced the NATED (N1-N3) at public TVET Colleges. The National Certificate (Vocational) is the new curriculum of TVET Colleges around the country.
It gives Grade 9 students an alternative to an academic Grade 10-12, but also gives students, who have already passed Grades 10-12, the opportunity to obtain a National Qualifications Framework (NQF) level 2-4 industry related qualification.
These programs were designed to incorporate both theory and practice. These qualifications are registered with Umalusi, which is also the primary ETQA of Boland College.
How long are these courses and will a student be able to enter tertiary education?
The College’s courses are at levels 2, 3 and 4 of which each is a year long. The college issues a student with a certificate on successful completion of each level of study. After completing level 4 a student will be issued with a National Certificate (Vocational).
This clearly stipulates that while the NC(V) Level 4 makes the student eligible for admission to higher education, it does not guarantee a student admission to any program of study. Within the context of this policy, the right of higher education institutions to set specific admission requirements to particular programs is confirmed.
Which subjects make up a National Certificate (Vocational)?
In order to obtain a National Certificate (Vocational), a student is required to take a total of 7 subjects. These include 3 fundamental subjects and 4 vocational subjects.
What is the difference between a level and a certificate?
For the level courses the minimum requirement is Grade 9 or 10, but students may also enter the program with Grade 11 or 12.
It is a three year course and it aims to equip students with the necessary knowledge of the workplace. This will then empower them to make a positive contribution to the country’s economy, productivity and the development of new technology.
For the certificate the student needs a Grade 12. This is a two year course and it aims to equip learners with the necessary skills required for elementary employment in different industries.
What is the language of tuition?
The College presents classes in both Afrikaans and English. The College endeavors to have all examination papers for major tests and examinations available in both English and Afrikaans.
Some resource materials are only available in Afrikaans and others only in English. Enquire from the Faculty Heads which materials are only available in one language.
What time do the classes start?
It depends on the course that a student chooses. A timetable is available at the campus secretary.
What practical experience will a student have after completing one of the programs?
All programs at Boland College have a big focus on practical experience.
Students obtain a document from the College, which the student submits to employers. It is the learner’s responsibility to find suitable employment.
Certificate students must complete 60 days of practical work during their two years of study.
In general, public Technical and Vocational Education and Training College fees compare very favorably with private sector institutions.
