HISTORY OF CAPRICORN TVET COLLEGE

These were the former Pietersburg Technical College (PTC), Bochum College of Education and the former Northern Province Community College (NPCC). The College was formed after the adoption of FET Act of 1996 by Parliament. Capricorn TVET College has four (4) campuses namely: Polokwane Campus, Seshego Campus, Ramokgopa Campus and Senwabarwana Campus serving the community of Capricorn District and other neigbhouring communities within Limpopo Province.
