The story of Motheo TVET College

Motheo TVET College is one of the four public TVET Colleges in the Free State, serving the Motheo and Xhariep Districts. Prof Dipiloane Phutsisi is the Principal of the College and President of the South African Public Colleges Organization (SACPO). When she took over as Principal in 2013, she had a clear vision for the institution, to train a skilled and capable workforce. Under her leadership, the institution preserved its past and is busy building the future. The College is comprised of a Central Office and nine campuses namely: Bloemfontein, Hillside View, Thaba Nchu, National Artisan Development Academy, Plot 32, Botshabelo, Koffiefontein, Zastron and Centre for Entrepreneurship and Rapid Incubator (CfE and RI).

The College has fostered partnerships with a spectrum of industries, government institutions and local and international partners who assist with skills development and where accreditation is not yet in place. The Free State Provincial Government led by the Former Premier Ms Sefora Ntombela accompanied by all MEC’s and HOD’s recently visited Motheo TVET College to strengthen the consensus on new areas of collaboration. The College is collaborating with the Free State Provincial Government with the intention of working hand in glove to build a long lasting strategic partnership that will respond to prevailing socio-economic challenges that continue to plague our communities, particularly the youth, foster development, innovation and also leverage on a pool of available skills offered by the College.
