MSC Education Group expands offering by incorporating Artisan Training

The group is successfully combining new technology with traditional face-to-face learning

MSC Education Holdings continues to firmly establish itself as a leader in education throughout South Africa. The Eastern Cape based education provider with humble origins is making more waves nationally in the education industry through new technology and partners. As of 1 January 2015, every student registering in full qualifications (excluding ICB courses) at MSC Business College received a new Proline tablet. The tablets are geared with an Electronic Learning Platform which allows learners to utilise the devices to optimise the learning experience. With 19 campuses across South Africa and 24 years of experience, MSC Business College is uniquely positioned in terms of product offering, accreditation and technology to become a leader in the field.

The tablets and technology are part of an ongoing drive from MSC Business College to equip students with the best education delivery method possible. However, the new technology has not substituted good old traditional face-to-face learning. As founder and director Cobus Potgieter states: “We now give students the best of both worlds – modern technology but with lecturers present, providing a blended approach”. In 2014 Potgieter was awarded as the Business Leader of the Year by the Leadership Development Institute and Border Kei Chamber of Business Buffalo City.

The education offering of MSC Business College doesn’t end with students. The company continues to progress its corporate training offering aimed at improving employee performance. MSC CEO Carol Taggart believes businesses can easily lose sight of what drives success: “A company’s strongest asset is the one that you won’t find on a balance sheet – employees. Inevitably companies spend large amounts buying, servicing and upgrading equipment, machinery and buildings. But employees are the heartbeat of the organisation, ultimately responsible for the success or failure of a company, and should therefore always be a top priority in terms of development.”

The coming year will also see the MSC Education Holdings subsidiary company the Master Artisan Academy of South Africa (MAASA) become more prominent and integrated in the group. “MAASA” is to be renamed The MSC Artisan Academy, and is set to open two new sites of delivery in Kempton Park and Rustenburg in early 2016. MAASA director Willie Gresse said of the expansion: “We are very pleased to roll out the success of our Artisan Academy here in East London to other parts of the country. We feel strongly that technical skills training needs to link intricately to what industry requires. This ensures optimal hiring efficiencies and long term growth for industry and the labour market. We look forward to contributing to the skills and technical needs of other regions and ultimately uplifting those communities and economies. We will be proud to offer this under the banner of the larger MSC name.”

As of 2016 The MSC Artisan Academy will be complementing the practical technical training with an interactive Electronic Learning Platform (ELP), which is unique to technical training in SA, and a major progressive step for the industry. This all forms part of The MSC Group’s holistic vision of becoming a leading provider of education in South Africa in the coming years.
