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.

Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT) is the foremost higher education institution in the heartland of South Africa, dedicated to quality education and training in science, engineering and technology. CUT has developed into a leading institution able to take its place on the national, as well as international, higher education landscape.
CUT, then still known as the Technikon Free State, opened its doors in 1981 with 285 students enrolled in mainly secretarial, art and design programmes. With the restructuring of the higher education landscape a few years ago, CUT embraced its new status as a university of technology and thus positioned itself to succeed as such. On 26 March 2004 the former Technikon Free State officially exchanged its “technikon” status for a tailor-made identity when its new name was published in the Government Gazette – a name that is a true reflection of what the university stands for: Central University of Technology, Free State.
CUT’s history, from its humble beginnings to the proud institution it is today, is reflected in its buildings. The unoccupied buildings of the Commercial High School in St George Street, leased in 1981, soon became too small and a second building in President Brand Street was occupied. In 1988 the university purchased the former premises of the Eunice Primary School campus of the Bloemfontein College of Education. Before long these were followed by the Main Building (today known as ZR Mahabane Building); the bhpBilliton Building, which houses a large portion of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology; Dirk Coetzee Building, which houses the Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences; Prosperitas Auditorium, as well as Boet Troskie Hall; and a modern Library and Information Service. Lapeng Student Centre is a hub of student activity that not only renders a valuable service with regard to the students’ requirements, but also ensures that they enjoy every aspect of student life to the full. This centre is equipped with an amphitheatre as well as a cafeteria where students can socialise.
However, it would be a pity if an institution’s progress could be measured only by its state-of the-art facilities. At CUT, progress and transformation go hand in hand. Within our institutional culture, CUT can also be described in terms of the needs experienced within an African context. CUT boasts a diverse student community that is a true reflection of the demographic composition. The implementation of an employment equity plan also guarantees that the academic and support staff are representative. CUT currently employs 1 582 staff members.
CUT offers a wide range of qualifications in its four faculties, namely Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Management Sciences, and Faculty of Humanities. CUT also commands respect with its relevant research.
From its inception the institution has been aware of its social responsibility towards the broader community.
The university is aware of the fact that not everyone has the privilege to study at the main campus on a full-time basis. Therefore, selected learning programmes are offered at CUT’s Welkom Campus and Kimberley Regional Learning Centre. An exciting development was CUT’s incorporation of Welkom Campus of the former Vista University on 2 January 2004. Learning programmes in Kimberley are offered in conjunction with the Northern Cape Higher Education Institute. Through the utilisation of modern technology, some learning programmes can also be pursued electronically via the internet. In this way CUT is living up to its status and reputation as a university of technology.
In 2011 the institution celebrated its 30th year of technological innovation – soaring to 2020. The milestone is a reflection of the university’s pursuit of quality education and academic excellence. In our efforts to educate, teach and train our students with the aid of world class technology, CUT will also focus on those values it holds dearly; namely customer service, excellence, innovation, integrity and diversity.
Nestled in the hills overlooking the vibrant city of Bloemfontein, lies the South Campus of the University of the Free State (UFS). The facilities can accommodate up to 4 000 students and include lecture rooms, an auditorium, a library and an impressive administration building.
Originally established in the 1980s as a satellite campus for Vista University, it was incorporated into the UFS in 2004. Ever since its incorporation, the UFS tailored the South Campus to play a significant role in the economy of the region, the enhancement of its people, as well as being the hub for distance learning programmes offered by the institution.
One of the main roles of the campus is to draw new students from lower levels of education that would previously not have been able to attain higher education. The South Campus offers programmes for students to gain access to Further Education and Training (FET) and Higher Education (HE) levels. These programmes enable learners to ultimately enter the mainstream curriculum after completing the preparation courses. Through offering this opportunity, the UFS ensures that students – who might otherwise have fallen by the wayside – get to develop to their full potential and realise their dreams.
In addition, the South Campus also serves as the pivotal centre to more than 6 000 long-distance learners. These students are not able to study on campus due to a variety of factors, such as their geographical location, financial constraints, or having to complete their degrees on a part-time basis as a result of job commitments. The influx of long-distance learners accounts for the South Campus being the fastest growing of the UFS campuses.
On-campus students receive intensive small-group instruction, which has been proven to be a highly successful method of tuition. Distance education is accomplished through the use of online technology and broadcasting mediums.
