ATHLONE CAMPUS - Capacity & Background

Athlone campus is situated close to where ‘the two ladies of Athlone’  (the iconic Athlone cooling towers) was situated before it was demolished in 2010. The campus was formerly known as Athlone Technical College, which was established as a technical college to service the Cape Flats, before the 2002 merger with three other technical colleges to establish the College of Cape Town.

The campus has four fully equipped Automotive and Skills workshops and is accredited in Automotive Motor Mechanics Training, as well as Trade Testing. Athlone campus was also awarded the Centre of Specialization (CoS) for Automotive Motor Mechanics in 2018 and is currently one of two Colleges in the country, piloting the programme. In addition, our partnerships include most leading automotive repair garages in the Cape Metro, including the RMI™ , Miwa™ and Haynes Pro™ vehicle data.


The campus manager, Mr Alfred Ramashlape, is competently assisted in meeting the executive requirements of the various campus management areas by a team of senior educators and administrators.
