In 1980, the name was again changed to the Industrial Training Centre (ITC).  At that time, the institution turned out a population of over 7,000 persons who had been trained at the Centre. The Centre offered short courses and persons attending received a stipend from the Government.  It was also in 1980 that the Bahamas Technical & Vocational Institute began with 225 students in shared facilities at the College of The Bahamas, Soldier Road Campus and at the C.C. Sweeting Senior High School Campus. The courses offered at both campuses were exclusively construction programmes.

In 1984, ITC became the sole occupant of the Old Trail Campus.  In 1995, the name, ITC was changed for a final time to its current name, The Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute. Over the years BTVI offered programmes in Andros, Exuma and Eleuthera.
