Stemming back to as early as 1925, Kangan Institute's rich history involves the merger of three major institutes-John Batman, Broadmeadows College and the Richmond automotive campus of Barton Institute of TAFE.
Our new name, Kangan Institute, is unveiled after thirteen years operating as Kangan Batman TAFE. The updated name is joined by a new logo and fresh brand colours to help reaffirm Kangan as a dynamic and progressive Victorian education provider.
