Partner with TSIBA Business School
In the revised B-BBEE Codes the definition of beneficiaries in the Skills Development element has been expanded from employees only to include expenditure more broadly on “unemployed black” people. Since TSIBA is a registered and accredited tertiary education institution, and the majority of our student beneficiaries are both unemployed (as students) and black as defined by the revised codes, all tuition scholarships or bursaries for TSIBA students now qualify for Skills Development expenditure – and may be channeled via bursary funding to TSIBA.
Scholarship partners invest directly in the education of deserving South African youth and have the opportunity to build a personal and professional relationship with their beneficiaries.
Partner with TSIBA Education Trust
TSIBA Education Trust (Master’s Reference Number: IT210/2007), founded in 2007, aims to secure the long-term financial sustainability of TSIBA student beneficiaries as a Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment entity within the TSIBA collective.

The Trust presents an opportunity for South African medium and large scale enterprises to partner in the Ownership element of the B-BBEE codes with a credible and impactful entity in the South African education and transformation context.

THE ROAD TO WOODSTOCK - NEW TSIBA CAMPUS
We will have moved in by January next year and all classes in the 2020 academic year will take place there. From humble beginnings in a blanket factory in Mowbray (2004-2005), to an outdated training facility in Pinelands (2006-2019), TSIBA is finally moving into premises that will serve as a first-class and aspirational educational establishment for our students.
In addition to the infrastructure we already own, the move will necessitate once-off additional spending of about ZAR 9.88 million. This expenditure includes IT and educational infrastructure set-up to modern standards, interior campus fit-out and signage, media, campus exterior and, of course, expenditure for the campus migration itself.
Towards funding these costs we are inviting partners who will help fund part or all of the funds required for this groundbreaking move for TSIBA? We do realise that this is a big ask. But we have big dreams for our students, and hopefully you will consider dreaming with us.
As we reflect on our history and where we are going, we will honour all of those organisations and individuals who have supported us as loyal and generous partners through a journey which started in a blanket factory in 2004. This will be celebrated when we officially launch the new campus early next year.
We are extremely excited about this move. TSIBA in the Woodstock campus will be a major step up, and will enable us to compellingly improve the quality of our offering to our students.
