Invictus Education Group


Invictus Education Group was formed in 2014 based on vision to become Africa’s Leading Private Vocational Educational and Training Network. The name “Invictus” was drawn from one of the World’s most inspirational leaders, Nelson Mandela, who often referred to William Ernest Henley’s poem, Invictus to draw strength from, whilst in captivity for 27 years.

Invictus Education Group focuses primarily in the provision of quality education for occupations that are in demand in the economy, thereby ensuring that every single graduate has an excellent chance of being employed.

It is therefore our mission to:


We offer nationally accredited and internationally recognised qualifications and programs in all jurisdictions in which we operate. Our focus is on high quality and relevant education and training that prepares our students for their future.
