DCC CAMPUS was founded by the late Mr K.M. Naidoo in the early 1990’s in the vicinity of Grey Street, Durban. The company was purposed to address the dire need for education and training of youth, with emphasis on the information technology (IT), and Business sector. Operation of the campus began with a staffing compliment of less than 10 staff members.
Within less than a decade, DCC CAMPUS expanded its operations by acquiring land and buildings at 384 Smith (Now Anton Lembede Street) Street, Durban. The company initially began its operations by offering accredited IT and Business related courses. However due to the demands of the technologically changing market, the Campus was given accreditation to offer courses in the Travel and Tourism, Hotel and Catering, and other sectors. As student numbers increased, DCC Campus further acquired Land and Buildings opposite 384 Anton Lembede Street, Durban. Sadly Mr K.M. Naidoo passed away during 2007, and ownership of DCC Campus was acquired by Mr V. Juglal.
Under the strategic vision and leadership of Mr V. Juglal, (current C.E.O.), DCC Campus continued to progress to reach its present position. The Campus boasts an array of Further Education, Higher Education and Short Courses. In addition the courses on offer, DCC has partnered with various professional bodies such as the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB), and Companies such as Microsoft. Furthermore, the Campus is host to well structured departments, and an array of professional lecturers with adequate industry experience.
With a rich history and strong foundation, coupled with dynamic leadership DCC Campus is well established and is renowned for offering quality courses and exceptional service.
After much investigation and debate, the 1972 Baptist Union Assembly, meeting at King William's Town, approved a motion that a Western Province branch of the Baptist Theological College of South Africa, be established in Cape Town, which would admit students of all races.
Cape Town Baptist Seminary was previously known as The Baptist Theological College of South Africa, Cape Town. The name change took place in September 2001.
The SAIM was conceived primarily as an Examining Body responsible for defining the format, content and standards of SAIM manager-development programmes—the conduct of National Examinations—the award of Certificates and Diplomas to students who have successfully passed the SAIM examinations.
Tuition was to be delivered through approved educational providers in both the public and private sector. It was strongly felt by Mr. Morcombe that students should be able to prepare for the SAIM examinations in accordance with their preferred mode of learning and circumstances, i.e. self study, correspondence or face-to-face tuition. Furthermore, Mr. Morcombe whose great role model was the great ‘self-taught’ US business steel magnate and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie, started work at 16. He acquired all his business management knowledge through part-time night school study and life-long ‘practical’ work experience. He was adamant that no student who desired to better him or herself should be prevented from enrolling on SAIM programmes solely through lack of formal educational qualifications.
In the 1980’s the SAIM formed Membership Services that represented a broad diversity of business managers providing opportunity for networking and business development in all spheres of business. Members are encouraged to meet, listen and discuss matters of topical interest and spend time with their fellow members to share ideas, experiences, problems and insights.
This, inevitably led to the formation of the Foundation in 1987 as the outreach foundation to uplift governance of rural schools. It expanded in 1993 to also include projects of life-skills and business skills in support of Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET). In 2002 projects to address the needs of the unemployed and HIV/AIDS awareness were conceived.

Established in 1999 by Belgian entrepreneurs Jan Rombouts and Enrico Jacobs, Belgium Campus is dedicated to alleviating the educational and unemployment challenges that exist in South Africa.
Belgium Campus grew from the observation that South Africa experiences very high unemployment rates, yet companies find it difficult to source skilled individuals who are equipped to fill the positions they require. One sector which is struggling under these conditions is the ICT sector which does not have enough qualified candidates to fill industry demands. Understanding this dilemma, and realising that traditional institutions of higher learning often produce graduates who are not employable; Belgium Campus devised and implemented pioneering methods to address these issues.
The programmes and curricula at Belgium Campus are constantly evolving, based on the needs of industry, a direct result of our Participative Model of Education and its holistic approach to education in a professional context. This innovative approach focuses on equipping students with the right type of education, fit for the industry. The development of both academic and personal skills guarantees immediate employability for our students in the dynamic world of ICT. Belgium Campus boasts a 100% graduate employment rate. Furthermore, the South African ICT-industry has awarded Belgium Campus R12 million towards bursaries and scholarships in 2013, a testimony to the trust we have earned from the industry.
It is thanks to the quality of our education and progressive views on the industry and society, which has allowed Belgium Campus’s student body to grow steadily from 7 to over 500 since our inception. As part of our commitment to growth, we have exciting plans to develop our facilities to cater for more students, and by 2017 we will boast a student body in excess of 800. The success of our education model has also attracted faculty and staff of the highest calibre and to date, permanently employs more than 80 people.
It’s through our dedication that Belgium Campus has developed into the number 1 institution in South Africa for diplomas and degrees in ICT. We are the only institution that concentrates exclusively on the ICT sector and produces up to 10% of its graduates in South Africa every year. Our qualifications are locally and internationally accredited to the highest academic standards available in South Africa, obtaining the recognition of our international partners, including the Association of the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium).
Our academic programmes equip our students with the desired theoretical and practical knowledge, the soft skills required to interact professionally in the business world, a world class qualification, and the assurance of success when entering the workplace. We mainly accommodate full-time students, but can facilitate programmes for employees, with minimum disruption to work commitments.
As part of our broader views on society and creating positive impact, Belgium Campus has adopted a Christian vision on humanity and society. This ensures an institution with an open climate and the promotion of cooperation between different cultures, races and religions. We place special emphasis on the importance of human dignity and the protection of those who are vulnerable, resulting in an intellectual atmosphere conducive to spiritual development.
