Catholic Education South Australia is taking over the Australian Technical College-Northern Adelaide, while the Australian Technical College in the city's south is expected to be signed over by the end of the month.
The federally funded ATC-NA will be renamed St Patrick's Technical College from next year, Catholic Education SA said in a statement.
Marketing and development manager for the college Mark Priddle says the Catholic Education Office was chosen from a number of tenders, ABC News reported.
"The move will be a positive one for the college in that it will allow us to offer a wider range of curriculum and also focus on helping students of northern Adelaide to develop trade and technical skills while completing their year 11 and 12 education," he was quoted saying.
The Adelaide South Technical College will be re-named and re-branded as Marcellin Technical College, after St Marcellin Champagnat, founder of the Marist Brothers community, the Catholic Education SA statement said.
"We highly value the partnerships formed with industry and the local community and are committed to continuing the educational opportunities both the northern and southern technical colleges provide for young people," said Jane Swift, Director of Catholic Education.
