St John Vianney Seminary NPC, is both a training facility and a house of formation. As a training facility, it is registered with the Department of Education through the Council for Higher Education as a private provider of higher education, under the Higher Education Act, 1997 with the Registration Certificate Number 2000/HE08/007. Four qualifications are duly registered with the same authorities, namely the Bachelor of Arts (Philosophy), Bachelor of Theology, Bachelor of Ministry and Bachelor of Theology (Honours). Fourteen full-time and resident staff members, also known as formators, who are all priests in the Catholic Church, form the core of the teams of lecturers in three departments, namely the Philosophy, Theology and Pastoral Theology Departments. Other lecturers are associates or visiting lecturers who are employed full-time elsewhere, either with neighbouring academic institutions or within the Catholic Church in the region of Pretoria and Johannesburg. Lecturers with suitable qualifications are employed on this basis, regardless of their religious affiliation. The majority of students for the priesthood enter St. John Vianney Seminary mainly as first year Philosophy students after successful completion of the Orientation Year at St. Kizito Seminary. The latter institution admits students who have a minimum of 25 points on completion of their matriculation exams. Students first complete a minimum of two years Philosophy, a basic Church requirement. Others who qualify go on to do a third year of Philosophy. The theological and pastoral training lasts for a period of four and a half years. Upon successful completion of training in the Seminary and on approval of personal assessment according to provisions of church law, students present themselves to their church authorities, the bishops, for ordination and admittance to ministry.
As a house of formation, St John Vianney Seminary NPC, provides for the human growth and development of students in the spiritual, pastoral and communal spheres. Through a well-structured community life in small groups and the larger group of students, each person is given the opportunity to interact with others in constructive ways. In this manner, students learn not only leadership, but also other social skills that would assist them in ministry. Accordingly, resident students live in sections of the house that enables them to identify with a particular group, called a formation group, headed by one of the resident formators, who ordinarily live in the same group area. This group expresses itself through bi-weekly sessions of prayer and worship and other occasional meetings, both formal and informal. Students in a formation group organize themselves that provide service for both the group itself and for the larger student community. The formation group also forms the basic nucleus of teams for inter-block games and sports. Besides formation groups, students ordinarily belong to other groups in the larger student community, namely devotion and prayer groups, sports teams, e.g. football, volleyball, cricket and squash.
For spiritual growth and development, students have an extensive program of training and assistance, including the attendance of two annual retreats, monthly days of recollection, occasional spiritual talks, and monthly one-on-one sessions of spiritual direction. For students who need further psychological assistance, the Seminary provides these services by referral to professionals.
Students’ pastoral training consists in a four and a half year program in which they obtain and practice pastoral skills. Besides class work, students are placed locally according to ability and interest, in certain projects in order to practice pastoral skills. The limited local pastoral placement program, which includes student ministry at Tshwane University of Technology and Pretoria University, ministry at the Hospice and certain Catholic parishes for ministry to the sick and aged, catechism assistance, ministry to children without shelter, and prison ministry. Students who have completed their second year of Theology do a six-month Pastoral Internship period outside of the Seminary in the diocese for which they are students. This program is closely monitored and assessed. Thereafter they return to the Seminary for their final two years of study and formation.
At the end of each academic year, the Formation Staff meet to discuss and assess each student, submitting reports to the President. The President writes personal assessment reports to the bishop of each student.
Currently, there are 120 Residential Students with 22 Day Students, which includes both private students and those from the surrounding religious formation houses

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.
