Description
ESTABLISHMENT:
Yeronga Technical College was established 1 July 1966 under the Education Act 1964. The college opened in 1967 and provided technical education to certificate and apprenticeship levels.

In 1977 the Technical and Further Education (TAFE) concept came into being, when by cabinet decision, Adult Education was integrated with Technical Education. The College was renamed Yeronga College of Technical and Further Education (TAFE).

In 1995 TAFE Queensland initiated the amalgamation of TAFE Colleges and Community Colleges into Institutes. Yeronga College of Technical and Further Education became Yeronga Institute of Technical and Further Education.

ABOLITION:
From the 1 July 2006 the automotive, building and construction, manufacturing and engineering and electrical training delivered at the Yeronga Institute of Technical and Further Education was progressively transferred to the Trade and Technicians Skills Institute (later renamed SkillsTech Australia). This transition was part of the Queensland Skills Plan. During the same period the remaining non trade courses delivered by Yeronga Institute of Technical and Further Education became part of The Metropolitan South Institute of TAFE.
