The college is focused primarily on training and developing employable and entrepreneurial skills. Courses are mainly related to technical occupations.

The Ekurhuleni Artisans and Skills Training College (EASTC) started developing its programme and course a few years ago to equip people with essential skills, and is a leader in its field. Classes are given in a workshop environment and prospective students can register online. Courses are tailor-made to suit students:

On completion of the course, the trainee will be competent in a specific field and will be able to start working immediately, either as an employee of a large corporation or even as an entrepreneur, and as a result, will be able to provide jobs to other less fortunate individuals.

EASTC is a practical training centre that focuses strongly on employable skills training in various technical trades. We equip the students with the essential skills in a workshop environment over a period of 15 days, after which they will be competent to start work immediately.

After successfully completing a short course with EASTC, students receive a semiskilled certificate, with which they must go and work in the trade for four years before they can apply to do their trade test to become a qualified artisan. We also update CVs on request and provide opportunities that can assist students with internships and job placements. Attending EASTC is an investment in the future.

Nationally Accredited Technical Education Diploma (Nated) College:

The EASTC Nated courses are accredited ones and are designed by the Department of Higher Education and Training. They are recognised by employers because they give students both theoretical and practical knowledge. Practical experience goes together with the theory that is taught at the college. Students are able to apply the knowledge they gain to real-life scenarios. Individuals who are educated and have practical skills are chosen by employers because of their valuable skills.

The top five advantages of completing Nated qualifications are accredited courses, access to universities, skills, focus, practical experience and employment opportunities.

EASTC Technical School:

EASTC Technical School is Ekurhuleni’s first technocentric school, offering a Curriculum Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) curriculum and several unique subjects, such as coding and robotics, from grades one to eight, and Grade R.

Through a technology-centric curriculum, EASTC endeavours to equip learners with skills that are relevant to the global digital economy.

We are an English medium school and part of the Independent Examination Board. We endeavour to equip learners with a balanced curriculum that prepares them for the real world, in which they can comfortably participate within the relevant industries with useful, relevant and employable skills within the global digital economy.
