To provide quality vocational education and occupational training to reduce the lack of skills, unemployment, poverty and inequality in the Eastern Cape and South Africa.

Soon after the merger, the Council closed the Border Technical College premises and absorbed its Business Studies programmes into East London Campus and its Engineering Division into St Marks Campus.
John Knox Bokwe Campus continued to offer both Business and Engineering Studies Report 191 programmes. At that point the College had an average full-time equivalent (FTE) of between 4500 and 5200 students.
