WHAT IS NCV?
The Department of Education introduced the National Certificate Vocational at public Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges in 2007. The NC(V) offers programmes of study in a variety of vocational field.  The programmes are intended to directly respond to the priority skills demands of the South African economy.

The National Certificate Vocational is offered at Levels 2, 3 and 4 of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). The qualification is designed to provide both theory and practical experience in a particular vocational field.  The practical component of the study is offered in a simulated workplace environment. Students have  the opportunity to experience work situations during the period of study.

A learner will qualify for a National Certificate Vocational after completion of all the levels. In order to obtain a National Certificate Vocational a student is required to take a total of 7 subjects. These include 3 fundamental subjects and 4 vocational/compulsory subjects.

The 3 fundamental subjects are:
- English
- Mathematics for engineering courses or Mathematics Literacy for business studies courses
- Life Orientation

The Department of Education also has a bursary scheme attached to this qualification for all learners who enroll for NC(V) and whose applications are successful.

Registration Procedure:
All learners who register for NC(V) must provide the following:
-  Original copy of Grade 11 or 12 report or higher
-  Two (2) certified copies of their ID document
-  Certified copies of their parent(s) / guardian(s) identity document(s)
-  Proof of income of parent(s) / guardian(s) (salary/pension statement) or 
a sworn affidavit if no proof of income is available.

Will learners, who complete a level at school, be able to proceed directly to the next level of a college programme?
The learner will get credit for those subjects that overlap with the college programme, for example, the fundamentals and, perhaps, one specialist subject from the NCS (such as Tourism or Hospitality Studies): competence in the other level subjects in the vocational specialisation  of the college programme will have to be achieved before going to the next level.

What will a student be qualified to do after three years?
Students will essentially have the following options:
-  Access work opportunities in a work environment or a relevant to his/her vocational specialisation
