Potchefstroom Tvet Colleges

Potchefstroom is a center of excellence for top-notch technical and vocational education. The Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges in Potchefstroom have a reputation for offering excellent education that gives students the information and skills they need to succeed in today’s competitive labor environment.

The several courses that are offered by Potchefstroom TVET Colleges are created to fulfill the needs of different sectors. These universities can accommodate your interests in engineering, business studies, hospitality, or information technology.


Vuselela TVET College is one of the three TVET Colleges in the North West Province, formed in 2002 as a result of a merger process. Four former technical colleges, now campuses of Vuselela, were merged in accordance with the principles that underpinned the transformation of the TVET sector. Vuselela now consists of five campuses, namely Jouberton, Klerksdorp, Matlosana, Potchefstroom, and Taung.

Matlosana Campus was previously not a technical college, but a training centre for the Goldmine DRD in the Stilfontein area. It is however moved to Plot 20, on the road to Orkney from Klerksdorp. It is developed into an Engineering Practical Centre with a special focus on mining-related engineering programs and Learnerships.

The College has a Corporate Centre in the CBD of Klerksdorp. The location of the Corporate Centre in Klerksdorp has proved to be a strategic location in close proximity to the majority of campuses, except for Taung.
