Thanks for sharing your story with us on how our programmes made a difference in your life Tshepang.
"The ICB has been the biggest stepping stone in my life by helping me achieve goals that seemed impossible.
After facing financial challenges and having to drop out of a traditional university due to funds, I had to find a job to save up for fees. I thought my dreams of acquiring a Finance related qualification were shattered. Fortunately, I got a learnership contract at the company I am currently working for and I got introduced to the ICB.
The structure of their programs brought new hope to my life. The flexible study options, together with the high-quality learning, eased all the stress I had about studying while working. During my learnership, I fell pregnant and that lead to my contract being terminated. The company was paying for my fees while I was on the contract, termination meant if I continue with the ICB I would have to pay in my own capacity, and that's where the other benefit was, because the ICB allows you to choose how many subjects you want to do at a time and when you want to write exams. This helped me financially as I could choose how many subjects I could afford for that year so I could continue studying while looking after my son.
Throughout the years I have been able to acquire the following through the ICB:
- National Certificate: Small business Financial Management
- Certificate: Office Administration
- National Certificate: Bookkeeping
- Further Education and Training Certificate: Bookkeeping
Currently, I am permanently hired with the same company and I am a Contracts Administrator and I am busy with my National Diploma in Technical Financial Accounting.
Thanks to the ICB's Flexible study options I am able to continue working, raise my son, and still achieve my goals."

❓ Want to know the plans of an ICB Top Achiever?
Have a look below:
"My long-term plan is to qualify as a Tax Practitioner with SARS and to go full-time into private practice with my own client base. I have worked for bosses for many years now, and I feel as though gaining my qualification will put me on the road to having my own business and being my own boss.
When asked why she chose ICB, Alison had the following to say: " ICB had the best variety of courses I found whilst researching what I wanted to study."
❓Do you also want to start your own business and become a Tax Practitioner?
❓But don't know what the guidelines are in becoming one?

"I have always preferred online learning, especially because I am a mother of 2 very busy boys and I had a full-time job, which also meant that I could not afford to take off a full day and my company did not offer study leave. I ended up taking a leap of faith and left my job to study full-time and complete my qualification in 2 years, as well as home-school my 2 boys myself, which is what we had to consider doing to save money while I was not employed (The opportunity cost was weighed and in the long run this will be the best option ).
It is tough to fit everything in one day however, as I did not experience any challenges at the beginning of my ICB journey or even now, with the ICB's YouTube videos being so helpful, as well as my student coach, Sally at Academy of York being so
amazing, my good marks are a sign that this is possible. Hard work, dedication and planning always pays off.
A few years ago, I completed a course through Academy of York, and I decided to complete my next qualification through them again. To my surprise I saw that they offered courses which are certified and accredited by ICB, which is also internationally recognised in terms of membership - one of my long-term goals is to move overseas. I have also read a lot of good reviews about ICB and I saw the support and encouragement which was offered to students over social media, so I decided to give it a go, and I am super happy that I did.
Once I have completed my qualification, I want to work for an accounting firm where I will gain practical experience, after which there are a few options of either starting my own business - either in accounting, or something different but where I can then do my own bookkeeping, tax etc. – or working for a company as their Financial Accountant, either locally or overseas. Ultimately, I want to become a Financial Director or similar."

👏 Get to know one of our Top Achievers and mother of three!
"Living in a foreign country I was desperate. Around me, people were saying that I could not study. But one day, I was on Google trying to see if there is an institution who provides Accounting Courses. Against my expectation I saw ICB. I couldn't believe it. I then decided to join in October, even though the academic year was nearly at the end. But unfortunately, the pandemic came and due to financial problems I stopped. In 2021, I went back thinking that ICB would not accept it, but they allowed me to carry on.
ICB is very flexible. You have many options for writing an exam, either you choose online or paper.
As a mother of three children it was very difficult to reconcile studying with homework, but because of the opportunity that ICB gives me, it is easier."

"When I applied through ICB to study Financial Accounting, I was scared about failing as I have never studied Accounting and my job was just basic secretarial work.
In my first year of Junior Bookkeeping, I have successfully completed all modules with 90% in every subject.
This certificate has opened so many doors for me. From being a secretary, I am now a Junior Bookkeeper at an accounting firm. I have decided to further my studies into my Senior Bookkeeping and Diploma ."

Meet Maryke Tonitz:
"In short, my parents didn't have the resources to allow me to study for 3 years, they gave me an opportunity to study for 1 year at a college.
I picked the course that I thought would get me employed, which was a secretarial course.
I obtained my N5 certificate at age 19 and 2 weeks later started to work at a local stationery shop.
My career and life took me through some interesting avenues, but I kept having my dream to become an Accountant.
So when my children were almost finished with their matric, I decided to pick up my own studies again (I am a firm believer that you are never too old to learn).
With the assistance of the ICB, I am now 4 subjects away from making my dream come true at the age of 50. The journey is not always easy but definitely worth it."

Looking for a Registered Qualification that won’t just make you Employable, it will ensure you are indispensable? YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
ICB is an 87-year-old Independent External Examination Body for Accredited Business Qualifications in Southern Africa. Our role is to create pathways for students to obtain valuable business studies skills for employment that are endorsed by credible Business Qualifications. As an appointed Quality Assurance Partner for QCTO (Quality Council for Trades and Occupations), we are authorized to conduct examinations on a number of Registered Qualifications that are on the NQF (National Qualifications Framework). All our training providers are accredited colleges who are registered with DHET (Department of Education and Higher Training). These colleges offer anything from accounting courses and bookkeeping courses to business management courses.
HOW OUR PROGRAMMES WORK:
We have broken our qualifications down into subjects, which are entered and examined individually. The ICB provides a (PoE) Portfolio of Evidence for each subject. The ICB is not a training provider or a college, which means we do not provide tuition, support or study material. We only do external assessment. Students first register with their Training Provider, and then register with the ICB to receive their PoE. This PoE includes 3 assignments and 2 tests and is completed by the student during their study phase. Each PoE is submitted and assessed together with a final exam. Once a student has passed all subjects in a qualification, the qualification is awarded by the ICB and FASSET. We can proudly say that we have successfully graduated more than 25 000 students over the last 5 years!
