How to apply for Boland TVET College 2023 Intake


Are you thinking of attending college after finishing your matric? Boland College is one of the highly recommended Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges in the Western Cape; the rural-based college consists of five campuses, namely Caledon, Paarl, Stellenbosch, Strand and Worcester, with its Head Office in Stellenbosch.


Applying to study at Boland College

The Boland TVET College offers one intake per year and announces on their official website and in local newspapers when they start enrolling.

Boland College’s website provides a step-by-step guide on applying to the institution. The institution offers both Higher Education programmes and National Certificate Vocational programmes.


Boland TVET College CAP/PACE testing

The application process has two parts; after being shortlisted, the candidate will write a PACE test. After applying to study at Boland College, one must write a PACE assessment test when one meets the minimum requirement. The test shows the level of linguistic (language) and numerical skills and development.


Firstly please relax; you cannot pass or fail the PACE test. Each programme that you apply for has a benchmark. That means you need to get a certain percentage in the PACE test for a specific programme. For another programme, the cut-off may be higher or lower. You will be allowed to register if you reach the benchmark (in other words, get the average needed for the course entry).


You will complete a second, different test if you obtain lower than the benchmark. The second test is called an LPCAT test which shows your learning potential. As with the PACE test, we examine your results and only if you score below a certain level Boland College will refer you to a different course.

It is not a difficult test, and you do not have to prepare for it.

What is, however, important to note is that the better your results, the better your chances are of being allowed to register.
