CTI is registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) as a private higher education institution. Its programmes are accredited by the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC) of the Council on Higher Education (CHE) in South Africa and registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). These programmes include Bachelor degrees, Higher Certificates and Short Learning Programmes in the fields of Commerce and Information Technology at CTI’s 11 campuses across South Africa.
In 2006, CTI formed a relationship with Pearson Institute of Higher Education (previously Midrand Graduate Institute (MGI)) with the aim of working together to deliver the highest standard of career-focused education and programmes, across multiple campuses, which are accredited locally and recognised internationally. Both CTI and Pearson Institute are separately registered and accredited private higher education institutions in South Africa. The relationship with Pearson Institute has also been designed to provide shared learning sites, enabling students to study accredited Pearson Institute programmes and qualifications at campuses across South Africa.
With 11 CTI campuses and Pearson Institute remote sites of delivery situated on the same premises, CTI and Pearson Institute are able to cater for both full-time and part-time students. Combined sites of delivery also provide our students with the opportunity to benefit from various campus facilities and interact with students from all walks of life.
Pearson, the world’s learning company, became the 100% owner of CTI Education Group in 2013 and seeks to serve the higher education market by providing educational resources such as teaching and learning materials, assessment services and a range of educational solutions and tools. By securing this partnership, Pearson’s strong brand, educational resources and global reach will help leverage CTI’s strengths and transform the higher education landscape in southern Africa.
