ENGAGING OUR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
If you have little or no experience in private education and training, but would like to access this sector for wealth creation and business development purposes, then we suggest you professionally engage our services and do promise you that your investment in our professional fees will place you in a strategic position to attain 10 x fees paid in sales as your first-year annual turnover, provided our strategic direction and guidelines are followed.
USE THE EXPERTS OR TRY THIS ALONE - A CASE IN POINT
We have several clients on our current books that have approached us many years earlier, and tried opening up their college on their own, failed either once or via several attempts & different approaches, and after spending a lot of money + invested time, returned to us for professional engagement.
In one instance, a client that first approached us in 2017, decided to go through the accreditation and registration process on his own, tried 19 different applications for different programmes over 3 years all of which were declined. The same client now recently formally engaged us for CHE Accreditation in August 2021. This client is now 80% complete for both accreditation and registration at a cost of R 375 K. The R375K spent on our professional fees must be measured against the 3 years wasted time and wasted effort and costs.
OUR HISTORY & TRACK RECORD
With our engagement, you will be accredited and operational within 4-6 months (almost certainly guaranteed) or do you do this on your own and still manage current workloads and priorities and still develop a new business model that is highly intricate, involved and detailed in all aspects of its academic and physical requirements.
And even with all of this place, there is no guarantee of success due to inexperience and not knowing the rules of the game. The CEO, Kay Naidu knows the rules of the game, which has been tried and tested over 30 years and will serve as your core strategic partner in this new business development, with some 114 college success stories across all accreditation authorities.

Innovatus FET College - 11 Franchised Colleges offering National Certificate Vocational accredited by the Umalusi Council, various SETAS and registered by the Department of Higher Education and Training - rebranded in late 2019 before COVID. The Head office was closed due to a conflict of interest with the national examination board mentioned above - the Global Examinations Board. The law requires that you are not allowed to run a college and be a national examination body within the same qualifications.
Innovatus Campus (Pty) Ltd - served as the franchising arm of the Innovatus FET College brand and was endorsed by the Franchise Association of South Africa (FASA) and the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS). Franchise agreements were on a 5-year renewable basis and after 10 years of operations, franchisees were allowed to rebrand in light of COVID-19 discovered by us as a threat in late November 2019.
