The Oudtshoorn Campus is the only multi-purpose training and education institution in the Klein Karoo, offering Technical, Vocational Education and Training, College and University levels of training. The Oudtshoorn Technical College was established after the local authorities had to close down the Commercial High School and the infrastructure became available. Community leaders identified the opportunity to utilize the building to offer tertiary education, alongside the TVET-programmes, to local and surrounding disadvantaged, less privileged and poor communities.
As a TVET institution, they firmly believe in the developmental value of career training through effective partnerships. Partnerships have been secured to ensure accredited, quality and affordable education. Currently this campus has partnerships with the University of the Free State.
As an TVET College, much attention is also given to skills and learner ships, advancing people towards a fully accredited qualification. All their programmes are SAQA (South African Qualification Authority) accredited. Academic staff are regularly advised on business trends by relevant industries through a system of advisory committees representing the business community. They pride themselves on being able to offer affordable training opportunities which have the same academic value of other tertiary institutions. A student counseling programme ensures individual attention for students.
Student Residence is available at Oudtshoorn Campus.
