Tshwane South TVET College is a Public TVET College which falls under the auspices of the Department of Higher Education and Training. It was established as the result of a merger of three Technical Colleges namely Atteridgeville, Centurion and Pretoria West, emanating from Government Gazette-Provincial Gazette Extraordinary (7 Dec 2001).

In 2006 Tshwane South TVET College gained a fourth campus (Odi Campus) from Orbit TVET College in the North West Province, as a result of the rezoning of the provincial boarders. This arose from a rationalisation of TVET Colleges in which some 150 Colleges around the country were reduced to 50.

The College aspires to empower learners through high quality Vocational Education and Training, to ensure that learners achieve the future they desire and offers education and training programmes that prepare learners for the world of work. Tshwane South TVET College offers various support services to students including academic support, work-integrated to prepare learners with the qualifications and skills necessary to start on a preferred profession route.

The College offers a wide range of programmes, including National Certificate Vocational (NCV) on Level 2 to 4, Nated Report 191 on N1 to N6, National N Diploma, occupational programmes, short skills and other skills programmes, Learnerships, Artisan Related Learning Programmes (ARLP) and Trade testing.

The Gandhi Mandela Centre of Specialisation for Artisan Skills situated at Pretoria West Campus, supported by the Government of India and its state owned company HIML through a donation of state-of-the-art machinery and tools, offers training for Electricians, Boilermakers, Mechanical Fitters and Millwrights. The Fitter and Turner offered at Centurion Campus is supported by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JAICA) in the form of Soft Skills and Lecturer Capacitation.

All programmes offered in the institution lead to recognised, accredited qualifications that are in high demand in different industries.
