It is with gratitude and pride that we wish to present the College Website to the stakeholders of Northern Cape Community Education and Training College, highlighting the environment of the College and its achievements, as well as the changed environment going forward. . Specific priority areas were identified to ensure more effective teaching and learning, as well as systemic capacity building and efficiency in the College in 2018.
The College Council had been fully functional and contributed to the success of the College. Council members were from all spheres representing, inter alia, academia, law, business, finance and human resources.
Each Deputy-Principal had to report on the performance of his section at various forums.
We must consider ourselves privileged to have the opportunity of having an institution that provides a second chance opportunity to about 230 226 people who have either never been to school or who have little basic education and nearly 299 544 who do not have grade 12 including the 9% of the primary school and 60% of the matric drop out (Statssa, 2013MDG – Goal 2) in the Northern Cape. The College is also a haven for the employed and the unemployed who wish to improve their knowledge and skills.
In an effort to build a credible institution that is accessible and responsive to community needs by providing varied and occupationally directed programmes, the college will have to become innovative in accessing resources and building strategic partnerships with the different stakeholders. To an extent, the college has had some interactions with different role players and partners at different fora. There is therefore no doubt that the democratically elected governance structure which is inclusive of all role-players will ensure that operations at the college are in the best interest of communities they serve.
The college is a reliable educational institution that will deliver on its primary mandate to restore social justice through the provision of quality Teaching and Learning. Systems have been put in place to ensure that teaching and learning taking place at Community Learning Centres. Centre Managers reports on a monthly basis on operational activities and statistics.
