Northlink Graduation May 2015
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.
