The colleges were known by a number of different titles:

  • "Colleges of Advanced Education" were generally ex-"Teachers Colleges" that slowly diversified their course offerings after their name (and often concurrent structure) changes. These changes happened at a time when more teachers were being trained than the local market could support.
  • "Institutes of Technology" were vocational educationally oriented and offered a range of courses up to higher education level.
  • Other names, often with the title "college" or "institute" were also used.
