"Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones weve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." - Barack Obama
The college sector is central to the provision of post-school education and training and is the area targeted by the DHET for the greatest expansion and diversity. The National Skills Development Strategy III has also acknowledged the central role of colleges in the delivery of sector skills imperatives. Colleges are therefore meaningful places for career preparation and appropriate sites of preparing for formal employment or selfemployment.
Tshwane North TVET College is thus tasked with considerable responsibilities and obligations to foster its capacity to serve others and respond enthusiastically and without reservation to the skills demands of our country. It is essential that the College develop and maintain close working relationships with employers in the respective areas of study. This will assist the College to locate opportunities for work-integrated learning and help us to place students at both post and past qualification stages. College staff must also keep abreast of developments in the industry, by being given opportunities to be exposed in the areas in which they teach, because the most important indicator of success for our College is the quality of the education and training offered and consequently the success of our students.
The College, with its mission, vision, values, traditions and reputation as an institution, is committed to the delivery target of the TVET Colleges which aims to increase access to programmes leading to immediate and high level learning.
College leadership at Council and Management level is vital to ensure that the system transforms in the desired direction. These structures are committed to advance relationships with prospective donors, partners in industry, commerce and civic leaders to promote and realise the goals of the College by remaining the institution of first choice to students and our society
