College of Cape Town History

College of Cape Town History

The College of Cape Town is the oldest Technical and Vocational Education and Training Institution in South Africa with a proud history dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. As the name suggests, we are based in Cape Town.

Four former technical colleges, Athlone College, Cape College, Sivuyile College and Western Province Technical College were officially merged on 1 February 2002 to become the College of Cape Town. This arose from a rationalization in TVET Colleges in which some 150 colleges around the country were reduced to about 50.


As a leading provider of Education and Training in mainly the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) band, the College of Cape Town has much to offer students and prospective partners as an alternative to General Education and Training.  Our courses lead to recognised, accredited qualifications that are in high demand by commerce and industry.

The College strives to provide high-quality education and training to help you equip yourself with the qualifications and skills you need to start out on a chosen career path.


Our College is situated in the central area of the Peninsula, and serves the greater Cape Town area, including a large percentage of traditionally disadvantaged areas and townships.  Although the majority of our students hail from the greater Cape Town metropolitan region, we proudly accept students from all other regions of South Africa, Namibia and other African countries, and many countries abroad.
