Northlink College is a nationally registered Further Education & Training Institution
Under the auspices of the National Department of Higher Education (DHET). The DHET was created in 2009, in order to advance the national vision of a coherent, comprehensive and differentiated post-school system.This post school system must contribute to the lives of individuals, the national economy and to the development of an equitable and capable South African society.
The DHET will achieve its mandate by effectively planning, regulating, resourcing and co-ordinating the provision of post-school education and vocational training opportunities especially for our country’s youth.The imminent promulgation of the FET Colleges Amendment Bill brings about a shift of functions related to the administration of FET Colleges from the provinces to the Minister of Higher Education and Training.
This function shift enables the DHET to realise the creation of a coherent post-school system and thereby comprehensively address the skills supply challenges.
South Africa's Technical Colleges have been reformed into a new FET (Further Education and Training) system. Bellville Technical College, Protea College, Tygerberg College and Wingfield College have merged to form a mega FET College in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town.
Northlink College was established in 2002, following the merger of four Colleges in the northern suburbs of the greater Cape Town Metropole. The Colleges were: Wingfield Technical College (three campuses: Wingfield, Goodwood and Table Bay), Protea College, Tygerberg College and Parow) and Bellville Technical College. In 2005 Northlink bought Belhar College, a private institution.
Northlink College has achieved a great deal during the last ten years towards its post merger progression.
