College SA is a Distance Learning Private and Business College, located in Tygervalley Bellville, South Africa. College SA offers Business, Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET)[1] to students, both in South Africa and internationally.

History[edit]

College SA was initially established in partnership with the Curro School Group, as Curro College in 2007. In 2008, the Curro School Partners sold their shares in the college and Curro College became College SA.

Since 2008, College SA has added more than 200 courses to its prospectus. These include both non-accredited as well as nationally and internationally accredited courses. With the expansion of its product range it became necessary to open an in-house printing department.

In 2016 the majority shareholding in the company was sold to JSE listed RECM and Calibre Limited (RAC) and Tabaldi Investment Holdings Pty Ltd (TIH). During this time the College was relocated from Bellville South to its current location in Tygervalley Bellville.

RAC and TIH have already made other key investments in other educational assets including Tabaldi Education (Tabaldi Online Accounting Classroom), UK based IASeminars, HBM Edu Tech and Optic Blaze Media.
