Tshwane North College is one of the 50 Technical and Vocational Education and Training colleges in South Africa. It has about 21000 students studying different academic programs throughout its 6 campuses in Mamelodi, Pretoria, Temba, Rosslyn, Soshanguve South, and Soshanguve North.
Tshwane North College takes the progress and wellbeing of its students seriously. Through its impressive teaching techniques, it has proven over the years that each student is a unique individual with the potential to succeed with a little extra guidance. Due to this, Tshwane North College has an ongoing assessment program for to-be students. The goal is to assess factors that affect their pass rate, failure rate, and what makes them want to stay in school or drop out. After this assessment, the college body critically analyzes each student’s response to the different sections and works to improve on that sector. This method has worked wonders since its inception because it brings the authorities close to the students and gives them an idea of their weaknesses, strengths and how to bring out the genius in each one of them.
Tshwane North College is in support of forming a profitable network to ensure scalability, and that is why it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with corporate bodies such as Health and Welfare SETA and Samsung to get appropriate equipment that will enhance learning and comprehension.
