INTRODUCTION / OVERVIEW OF PAX COLLEGE:

PAX COLLEGE was established in 1991, with the mission to primarily provide tertiary education and training according to manpower and technological needs of industries. In pursuit of academic excellence, the main emphasis at the college is specific vocational preparation. Since inception, Pax College has offered various recognized qualifications in the IT, Business Studies, Tourism, Beauty and Hotel/Catering Fields.

Pax College’s aim has always been to nurture the learner’s intelligence and broaden their outlook on life for the competitive working world. Pax’s education solely revolves around practicality that will ensure response from industry in the form of job reservation. Our organizational goals which border on the success and marketability of our institutions programmes have found expression in the number of graduates that have secured placements in industry and the satisfactory feedback obtained even during experiential learning.

Pax College has therefore acquired a reputable, respected and recognized status as a private tertiary educational institution which has served the greater Durban area for 25 years. The Pax College mission statement is “to be a quality provider of repute in South Africa providing professional, competent and confident graduates that respond to industry needs and develop the Community in the Education Sector”. It is our institution’s fervent desire to contribute to a stable economy, investing in “Our People’s Future”.

At this time, when the need for education in South Africa at all levels is extremely pressing, it behooves those of us who are best qualified and most experienced in the field to show that we are willing and able to extend ourselves and to take up the challenge.
