Company Profile

IQ Academy was established in 2006 as a provider of distance learning short courses in the business related sciences. IQ Academy was a small department of Centurion Academy, a Private Higher Education Institution, focused on industry skills required to ensure employability. IQ Academy grew from humble beginnings into a substantial force in the private distance education landscape. With the success of theirr students and the desire to offer them more, Centurion and IQ Academy management decided to establish IQ Academy as an Independent Private Education Provider.

IQ Academy exited the Centurion Academy umbrella and merged with Fernwood Business College (Pty) Ltd to establish a new tertiary institution named IQ Academy (Pty) Ltd. The newly formed IQ Academy is registered with the Department of Higher Education as a Private Higher Education Institution; and also provisionally registered as a Private Further Education & Training College.

Benefits of Their Online Courses

IQ Academy’s ambition is to provide access to distance education and training that has a significant positive impact on our students’ lives through employment relevance, quality curriculum and adaptable teaching and learning methodologies that suite their diverse students. It is within this context that they aim to realise our vision.

At IQ Academy they focus on four key value propositions aimed at ensuring what they do align with their vision.

1. Accessibility

Access to education is a priority throughout the structures of the Department of Higher Education and the greater community. They as a private institution support their regulators and stakeholders in achieving their vision by continuously focusing on innovation and accessibility to education for more students.

Through their programmes, course development and implementation strategies they aim to make their courses accessible to their demographically diverse students. The programmes and courses are also modular and are thus designed for easy access and completion.

They invest in their people and technology to ensure learning programmes are fully supported and students have access to dedicated programme managers while assistance is available through various channels (telephone, digital, email, social media and soon to be launched a student portal).

As a distance education institution with students from across the greater South Africa, they recognise the challenges their students may experience versus those studying at traditional face-to-face institutions. They aim to bridge the distance gap through promoting and facilitating connectivity and social interaction between academic staff-and-students and student-and-students, thereby establishing a virtual community.

2. Affordability

They innovate and apply continuous improvement principles to ensure they can offer an affordable learning experience without compromising on the quality thereof.
They consistently innovate their fee payment plans and provide access to innovative payment solutions that enable and promote access to education.

3. Accredited

They offer formal education courses which are fully accredited and registered with the required regulatory bodies.
Their own short personal development courses are internally accredited through their own rigorous quality management system ensuring that they meet their students’ and industry expectations.

They work closely with their various regulators to ensure a sustainable partnership for the benefit of their students.
They strive through their quality management system to ensure that each programme they offer is of the highest standard.

4. Aspirational

People aspire to “things” in life, be they achievements, recognition or material possessions, and we recognise that we need to enhance our students’ aspiration to achieve more than they ever dreamed possible.

They aim to develop their brand into a leading aspirational private distance education provider recognised by industry and employers across every sector of the economy. By providing their students with a learning experience and not just a qualification.
They aim to enhance their brand through engaging with their communities and ensuring that their institution is a valuable social asset for the greater society.
