Nothern Cape Urban FET College operates on two campuses in Kimberley: one is in the central business district, known as the City campus, and the other is in Vergenoeg, a township of Kimberley and also known as Moremogolo campus.
The college’s vision is to be a dynamic partner in the socioeconomic improvement of the region, by providing optimal access to learners; complementing general education and training or school education and higher education by filling the gap between the two sectors; creatively developing entrepreneurs and providing market-related vocational training.
One of the college’s strengths is sport. Rugby and cricket academies have been established, with soccer and netball to follow.
The Northern Cape also has semi-precious stones such as rose quartz and amethyst that are unique to the province. In the college’s stone-cutting and polishing workshops, these stones are cut and polished for jewellery.
Other critical skills include Cabinetmaking and Carpentry, Plumbing, Electrical Engineering, Motor Mechanics, Welding, Upholstery, Building and Clothing Production.
