“We are changing lives, and that is a big deal, plus, we will Accelerate your CAREER!"

Teaching methods and style

We’re a 100% online education provider, so we use a state-of-the-art learning management system (LMS) to deliver our active teaching, resources and assessments. Our system tracks and manages the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials.

What is competency-based education?

This type of education measures skills and learning rather than time. PCiBS students’ will progress through courses when they can prove they’ve mastered the material and not only at the end of a semester or term. Some students can learn faster, spend more time on schoolwork, or utilize the knowledge they have from prior learnings.

With 24/7/365 access to online learning resources, students can embark on a tailored educational journey according to their current knowledge and competencies. Each potential student performs an online self-assessment before his engagement as a student with PCiBS. Besides, faculty members and lecturers will provide personalized learning support.

It doesn’t matter what obstacles and challenges you face, PCiBS will put you in charge of your education. The following items are crucial to putting YOU into the driver’s seat of your studies.

  • It’s individualized: Because every student is different, we believe the learning experience for our students should be built around you, not PCiBS.
  • It’s efficient: You focus on learning the material that’s new to you. We assist in some topics where you need a bit of a refresher and follow on through subjects you know well. If you are competent, you are qualified! We don’t waste your time.
  • It’s supportive: You have a whole team around you to assist you in making a success of your studies, from our faculty, lecturers, staff, and your fellow students.
  • It’s flexible: Study when and where it works best for you. PCiBS LMS resources are anywhere wifi is.

Additional Benefits

What makes us different from all the other schools?  


"A personal competency assessment will be performed on each student during the first few weeks of the program.

A feedback report with the various competencies will be issued to assist the students in identifying their own strengths and development potential. Here is a list of some of the items: Behavioural Styles; Abilities and Skills; Emotional Intelligence; and Growth Potential.

About the model: These INTERNATIONAL competencies are developed using an existing framework as developed by JG Sassenberg."


"The development report outlines what actions could be considered to improve behavioural competence and what candidates might want to develop further. The appropriateness of each piece of advice will differ for each individual and will to some extent, depend on your job and the opportunities and resources available. We assist each candidate through this process.

It is recommended that you initially look at both your personal strengths and development areas as part of your personal development strategy. In some cases, there might be no strengths or developmental behaviours identified. Then you could identify the behaviours that would be of the greatest benefit to your development in your current work context. "


"Students will identify their competencies with our Individual Development Planning (IDP) tool.

These competencies will be peer-reviewed by a subject matter expert.

Competencies are also identified, allocated and updated (3 times) ongoing over the duration of the program."


"Coaching and Mentoring will be run in pre-arranged sessions with your subject matter expert over the period of the program. Work or assignments will be allocated depending on the outcomes of the sessions.

Coaching sessions are normally run every two to three months, and mentoring is normally once per semester."


"Individuals will be prepared for a real-life interview process. Practising for interviews forms part of our intensive active learning process and assists candidates in being ready for any question that comes their way."


Full tuition for students: $12775+15%VAT
