The College was established in terms of the Further Education and Training Act, Act No. 98 of 1998 and declared as such by Members of the Executive Council for Education (Gauteng Province) in terms of a Provincial Gazette Extraordinary (dated 7 December 2001).
The College came about as a merger of individual technical colleges that had all existed for about twenty years. These were Benoni, Brakpan, Daveyton (former Isidingo), Springs and Kwa-Thema (former Tlamoha) Technical Colleges. The merger brought together diverse skills and talents, resources and leadership, culminating in a mega force in the Further Education and Training arena
To be a world class TVET institution where people are empowered with relevant knowledge and skills, preparing them for the labour market and self employment.
To create a quality learning environment that anticipates, prepares for and meets the Education, Training and Development expectations of our clients.
I hope that this year, like the past year, will bring fresh challenges and opportunities for us to grow and connect as Ekurhuleni East College (EEC) community. As we begin what is sure to be another great year, we should start by welcoming new EEC community members.
It’s my pleasure to extend a very special welcome to all our new and also to all our returning students. As you take the time to read through this message, I would like to draw your attention to some important reminders that will help all students settle quickly and support the college’s efforts to achieve service excellence.
