Second Chances Programme

Many students who enrol on the N1 Engineering programmes do not meet the minimum school-leaving requirements to enter our Public TVET College system, (Grade 12 with minimum 50% pass in Maths and Physical Science) and therefore have little chance of finding meaningful employment and Career advancement.  

Golden Ratio College has partnered with Mthashana TVET College to provide our youth with a “Second Chance”, to enter the FET system, and provides for expanded access into the Public College system.

Understanding the Education Sector, enables our College institutions to develop clear and detailed action plans, which includes future trends that will influence the external environment, and will allows us to mitigate against current and future risk.  

The objective of this public private partnership is to provide learners with the bridging programme National Certificate Orientation (Engineering) NCOR and an N1 programme to gain access to N2 programmes over a 6-month period.

Learners who do not meet the prescribed entry requirement will be identified, and Golden Ratio College will enroll  and train these students on the NCOR bridging programmes.

The analysis and strategic decision taken by the Partner Colleges, ensures a multi-pronged approach is adopted, for us to achieve the objectives of our Institutions.

This Public/Private Partnership seeks to provide an opportunity for young people, who through a lack of academic credentials, cannot access a formal N-programme course at Public TVET Colleges. These students may include those who:

  • left school early,with a grade 10 to a grade 12
  • with a grade 12 but not with the correct/requisite subject combination
  • may be employed,but wishing to embark on formal studies to attain ARTISAN status
  • may for whatever reason wish to create a second chance towards formal education

THE NC(OR) PROGRAMME

During the early 90’s, the then Department of Education and Training, developed a programme as bridging into N1,called the NC(OR), NATIONAL CERTIFICATE ORIENTATION, that gave weaker students the opportunity to prepare for N1.  The programme enjoyed huge success at the time, and Golden Ratio College has built on the foundations of this Umalusi Programme and through this Public/Private Partnership, will reintroduce this programme, to assist thousands of young South Africans towards a second chance for formal education.

The goal is to churn out a well-rounded student, who has been orientated into the NATED Stream, as well as general college life, and has demonstrated her/his ability to cope with the demands of the NATED programmes.
