Central JohannesburgCollege (CJC)
Central Johannesburg TVET College (CJC) was established on 11th September 2003 when the late Minister, Prof. Kadar Asmal, launched the landscape for the then Further Education and Training (FET) sector at our Alexandra campus. The name FET was later changed to Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) by the current Minister, Dr Blade Nzimande.
The Central Johannesburgcollege is one of 50 public TVET colleges in South Africa operating under the auspices of the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). There are eight TVET colleges in Gauteng.
Central Johannesburgcollege has eight campuses, i.e. Ellis Park, Parktown, Alexandra, Riverlea, Langlaagte, Crown Mines, Smit Street and Troyville. The eight campuses are spread within a radius of approximately 10km from the Central Office in Parktown.
