History of Campus
Atteridgeville College (now known as Atteridgeville Campus) was established in 1991 after a motivation by the community with funds donated by Anglo American and De Beers chairman’s Fund. The following satellite campuses were established; Citicol for Grades 10 – 12 – which offered both full and Part time studies in skills based tuition, Kidicol for nursery school children, Busicol for Entrepreneurship courses and Twin Palms as a Training restaurant. In 1999 it grew enormously and it changed management. It had another campus and offered distance learning at the Mooi Nooi Semancor mine at Rustenburg. Classes offered were; computer related, Early Childhood Development, Hair Care and Engineering. Then the Mooi Nooi mine did not renew the contract between itself and the college making the college to part ways with it. The college had two buses one for Computer students and the other one for ECD students. Both buses were used for community outreach projects where students would share their expertise with the communities.
The BCD was also funded by Anglo American. The Cosmetic Salon build in 1994 at the then Atteridgeville College was donated by Esteč Lauder. As for the trade of the college itself that of civil there was no formal training offered for it in Pretoria. Hence the college was built for that sole purpose. The Anglo American marketing division marketed the Engineering course to the army and Tshwane Metro and they did that through the SETA. One highlight of the then Atteridgeville College was when one of its former students Mr Johnny Masemola represented SA in Hairdressing World Olympics in Canada in 1998. He fared well amongst 300 participants.
Today Atteridgeville Campus is a satellite campus of Tshwane South College. It is well known for its Civil Engineering offering.
